A recent Junior Chef ‘moment’ was born in my kitchen. It came about from function:
a) My toddler needed something to do
b) It was lunchtime
c) I had avocados on the brink of expiry
Voila! An opportunity to kill three birds with one stone! Beautiful.
Our family-guacamole is crazy simple. If the kids aren’t eating it I make it spicier but the plainer the better for my kids and this recipe is very simple.
2 ripe avocados
2 Tablespoons salsa
1 tablespoon lemon juice
Pinch of salt
The toddler friendly part comes to play in the scooping and the mashing. Simply hand your child the avocado washed, sliced in half and pitted. She can scoop the avocado into a bowl and mash with a fork or potato masher.
Scooping and mashing two avocadoes took my almost 3 year old a good ten minutes. Just enough time for me to get the rest of lunch prep going and almost done. She sat there so happily, scooping and chatting. And creating something super delicious all on her own!
Once mashed, add in the last three ingredients and serve. Guacamole is delicious with almost anything.
