Paul’s Famous Guacamole

By Neka Pasquale, Founder of Urban Remedy

Guacamole is a delicious and simple way to consume avocados, one of our favorite superfoods. In Chinese medicine, avocados are said to lubricate the intestines and nourish the yin, meaning they are beneficial for dry skin, hair and eyes and great for anti-aging. Additionally, avocados are rich in inflammation-lowering monounsaturated fats, which are linked to heart health, and they contain triple the amount of potassium compared to bananas!

Here, Neka’s BFF Paul shares the secret recipe for his famous guacamole. It’s perfect paired with Zucchini Chips and served as an appetizer before Thanksgiving dinner or before the Big Game.

Paul’s Famous GuacAvocados

1 ripe avocado
1 ripe tomato
1/4 small Maui sweet onion
1/2 cup (4 fl oz) fresh lime juice
Himalayan pink salt

Halve, pit, and peel the avocado, then place in a bowl and mash with a fork. Halve the tomato crosswise, then grate the flesh on the large holes of a handheld grater, discarding the skin that is left behind. Grate the onion in the same way. Add the tomato and onion to the avocado, then mix in the lime juice and the salt to taste.

Makes about 1 1/2 cups (12 oz)
