About Guacamole, there is not much to say. I never actually found avocado to be particularly tasty. Sadly, I never really could join in celebrating the avocado hype of the past decade, although I would have liked to.
Somehow, even though I tried to learn to love avocado for many times, it never really convinced me. I always found its taste too fat and heavy and I didn’t like its strange aftertaste. But its color! Oh my God, how can a vegetable (is it actually a vegetable or is it rather a fruit?! I honestly haven’t looked that up…) have such a beautiful bright green color? Every time I peel off the reptile-like dark brown skin, I am almost speechless with excitement and awe about this intense, beautiful green, hiding under this inconspicuously looking skin. Wow.
Looks so nice, but tastes so bad, I always used to think. And just because I don’t like its taste, I can’t make such great, bright green-colored sandwiches. But: Then I discovered the guacamole. At my favorite Mexican restaurant. I was so happy! I finally I found a way to like avocado, too. With fresh coriander, mint and lime it tastes excellent! Try it, e.g. with vegan tacos or on a crispy toasted, gluten-free bread.
