Guacamole That’s Good For Your Heart!

By  |  0 Comments

Guacamole is such an awesome snack and it tastes sooooo much better when you make your own! You can have it just with crackers or veggie sticks, or serve it up with your main meal.

This zesty guacamole recipe contains some key nutrients which are great for the cardiovascular system and your heart will love it!

Raw onion and garlic contain sulfur compounds that help to lower cholesterol and blood pressure, prevent blood clotting and protect the heart.

Avocados provide essential fatty acids that protect our cell membranes and tomatoes contain lots of antioxidants including vitamin C and E which help prevent the oxidation of lipids in our arteries – reducing our risk of heart disease.

 Ingredients

  • 2 large avocados (or 3 small ones)
  • 2 tomatoes
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 1/2 red onion
  • Handful of coriander (stalks and leaves)
  • 1/2 lemon squeezed
  • 1/2 tsp of cumin
  • Sea salt and cracked pepper to season

 Method

  • In a food processor, blitz up the coriander, onion, garlic and tomatoes until very finely chopped.
  • Halve and de-stone the avocados, then scoop out the middle into a bowl. Mash the avocado in the bowl until smooth (or at least less chunky).
  • Mix in the coriander, onion, garlic and tomatoes with the avocados.
  • Add the lemon juice and cumin, then season with salt and pepper.
  • Mix together until well combined.
