My Avocado Dip ©

June 13, 2012

 

 

 

This is one of my favourite dips. It has a beautiful texture, colour and delicate taste.

 

 

Easy

 

 

4-6 Persons

 

 

 

 

Ingredients

1 ripe avocado

100g cream cheese ( Philadelphia )

1 very small finely grated onion

Lemon juice to taste

Salt and freshly ground pepper

4 drops Tabasco

Coriander sprig, or parsley for decoration

 

 

Method

1. Press avocado gently to make sure it is ripe all over.

2. Peel and place in blender, together with the rest of the ingredients.

3. Blend until smooth.

4. Taste and get seasoning just right. It should be tasty, remember it will be eaten with a biscuit.

5. Spoon out into serving bowl. If not using straight away, drizzle with a few drops of lemon juice and seal very tightly with cling film , to prevent browning. Store in fridge.

6. Decorate with a coriander or parsley sprigs just before serving. ( Pour off lemon juice if used. )

 

N.B. Make on the same day, preferably 2 hrs before, because the avocado has a tendency to go brown. If this does happen, remove the outer brown layer with a spoon, underneath it will be green.

 

 

 

Pick an avocado from your tree or select one from the green grocer.

It can take about a week to ten days to ripen when picked from a tree. When bought in a shop, unless already ripe, it usually takes about three or four days to ripen kept at room temperature.

Assemble ingredients.

 

Grate onion on smallest holes of grater, so that it is smooth.

 

Place ingredients in blender and blend until smooth. Adjust seasoning if needed.

 

Final Result !  Serve with grissini or small biscuits. This dip has a delicate taste, so choose mild tasting

biscuits.
