I finally feel like summer is actually here. Living in college is sometimes like living on a National Trust property and I have seen the beautiful gardens transform with each season to finally reach their peak now. The ‘sunken rose garden’ is finally living up to its name, purple wisteria covers the sides of buildings, the flowerbeds are bursting with colour – I feel very lucky to live here for 3 years!
Now that we are experiencing (occasionally!) warmer weather, I am enjoying cooking and eating slightly lighter meals. Guacamole works equally well as a light lunch or an afternoon snack to get through essay writing, as well as being a great recipe to have up your sleeve to become the most popular person at the start of a party. There are endless recipes for guac and you can jazz it up with chillies, spring onions or even diced tomatoes but in my opinion when the fridge is scarce avocados, lime and coriander are all you need for a truly addictive summer dip.
- 2 ripe avocados
- zest and juice of one lime
- half a bunch of coriander
- salt and pepper
Peel two avocados and remove the stone. Mash with a fork into a paste, either smooth or chunky depending on your taste. Add the lime zest and half the lime juice, then tear up the coriander roughly and fold it all through. Add the remaining lime juice to taste along with plenty of salt and pepper. Enjoy!
