Easiest Low FODMAP Guacamole
Low FODMAP Guacamole
- 1 clove garlic, whole
- 1-2 tablespoons olive oil
- 2 avocados
- Juice of ½ a lime
- Leaves from 1-2 cilantro stalks
- ½ jalapeño or habanero (more or less depending on how spicy you like it!)
- ¼-½ teaspoon salt
- Pepper, to taste
- A few dashes cumin
- Chips of your preference
- Lightly smash the garlic clove with the flat side of a knife (Lightly! You don’t want it to be smushed to smithereens). Remove the paper husk and cover the garlic with the olive oil in a small bowl or jar. Swirl it around a bit so the oil covers the garlic (if it’s really big I sometimes cut it in half) and set aside while you make everything else.
- Scoop the avocado out of the peel (I cut it into chunks while it’s still in there) and mash in a medium bowl. Slice the cilantro and jalapeño or habanero into small pieces and add to the avocado along with the lime juice, salt (start with ¼ tsp), pepper, and cumin.
- Add the oil, mix, and taste the guac. If it tastes like it still needs something, add a little more salt. If you’ve accidentally made it too spicy or salty or lime-y, add more oil. Adjust spices to your liking.
- Enjoy with some chips and a margarita (or two). Cheers!
