salt and milled black pepper
- 2 ripe avocados
- 2 large, red, ripe tomatoes
- 2 small cloves garlic, peeled and sliced
- red onion, cut into quarters
- 2 small red chillies, halved and deseeded
- juice of 2 limes
- a few drops of Tabasco
- 2 tablespoons of fresh coriander leaves, to garnish
Jars of any size, Nanostoppers, Vacuum Pump or Airtender Electric
Halve the avocados and remove the stones. Then, cut them into quarters, remove the flesh from the skin and place it in the bowl of a food processor. Now, using a teaspoon, scrape away any green part of the avocado flesh that has adhered to the skin and add this, as this will help to give lots of green colour.
Now skin the tomatoes by pouring boiling water over them, then leave them for exactly 1 minute before draining and slipping off their skins (protect your hands with a cloth). Then halve them and pop them in to join the avocado, followed by the garlic, onion and chillies, and then add the lime juice, a few drops of Tabasco and some salt and pepper. Now blend it all to a smooth pur.e.
Scoop into the jar(s). Serve directly, or insert a Nanostopper and pump to vacuum with your hand pump or Electric. Store in the fridge.
