So the snow is flying, the kids are sick and I am starved…my urge to cook goes to hell in a handbasket when I am passing out cough syrup, wiping noses and trying to find time to shovel the white stuff so the mailman does not do an impromptu headr’.
While it does not happen very often, there are times when I just lose all motivation to cook ANYTHING. Much less anything that is nutritious, tasty or remotely interesting.
Enter stage left – recipes that are fast, easy, taste awesome, require little to no prep, clean-up or energy AND are somewhat healthy – a few good fats, some protein, a bit of fibre.
Speedy Guacamole – ENJOY! in only 2 minutes!
1 avocado, halved, seeded, flesh scooped out
2 tablespoons of salsa – or to taste
2 tablespoons of lime or lemon juice – or to taste
2 tablespoons of mayonnaise – or to taste
salt and pepper – to taste
- Put all the ingredients into a bowl and mash together with a fork. Taste for seasoning.
- Enjoy with your favourite tortilla chips, on a burger or as a condiment for a breakfast burrito – pretty much great with anything!
And what do you know…the kids are sleeping, the guacamole is made and Guy’s Big Bite is on the telly!
I’m gonna eat alone…Cheers!
