  • Total Time 1 Hours 20 Minutes
  • Spice Level Mild
  • Servings 6
  • Ingredients 7

Ingredients

  • 50g rocket, plus extra to garnish
  • 1 garlic clove, chopped
  • 3 spring onions, trimmed and chopped
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 3 ripe avocados, peeled, stones removed and flesh chopped
  • 2 tablespoons freshly chopped flat-leaf parsley
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Instructions

  1. Place the rocket, garlic, spring onion, lemon juice, avocado and parsley in a food processor and pulse until almost smooth, scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed. Transfer to a serving bowl and stir in the salt. Season with freshly ground black pepper, if you like.
  2. Cover the surface closely with cling film and refrigerate for 1 hour to allow the flavours to blend. Garnish with the extra rocket and some freshly ground black pepper and serve.

Tips

Watercress can be used in place of rocket, if you like, as it has a similar peppery flavour. Or try a mix of both.

For a more pronounced lemon flavour add 1 teaspoon finely grated lemon zest or 50g drained and chopped preserved lemon.

Don’t just dip! Make a delicious pasta salad by stirring a few spoonfuls of the guac into cold cooked penne pasta along with an extra squeeze of lemon juice. Add flaked poached salmon fillet and cooked peeled prawns, if you like.
