#LetsLunch is going GREEN this month. Green, to me, shouts cucumber and lettuce, granny smith apples and limes, but my all time favourite green food is WITHOUT A DOUBT…the AVOCADO. I think it is the most sublime fruit that there is! So I’m going to share the simplest, easiest and greenest recipe I have. I know anyone who has ever (or not) set foot in the kitchen has their own version of an avocado dip, and probably thinks ‘why do we need another?’

Well, let me tell you, I used to think the same… until I tried this! The recipe comes from Natanya (my MondayMorningCookingClub sister) who got it from her good friend Jeff Engelman many years ago. It has now become a staple part of my Friday night dinner. I serve it for starters alongside my ‘egg & onion’, chopped liver and freshly baked challahs.

The Soon-to-be-World-Famous Avocado Dip (Guacamole)

  • 3 avocados, peeled and mashed
  • 1/4 red onion, very finely chopped
  • 2 Roma tomatoes seeded and chopped
  • really good splash of Tabasco (or hot chilli sauce)
  • juice of 1 lemon, or to taste
  • lots of sea salt and freshly ground black pepper

Mix everything together and taste for tabasco, salt , pepper and lemon
Makes about 2 cups

Serve with cut up veggies, corn chips or whatever you like as a starter, or as a side dish at a bbq…or just on its own with a loaf of fresh bread…and I promise that once you start, you won’t be able to stop eating it…

Finely chop the onion and tomato…

I used a masher to mash the avocado, much easier than a fork but I make sure not to make it too smooth

Now for Something Sweet

Social Media



We will interrupt our #MMCCeggwhiteweek with an important chicken annoucement.⁠

Please join us in the MMCC kitchen for a live zoom cook-along next Monday 10th August at 11 am.⁠

Lisa + Merelyn will demo one of MMCC's BEST chicken recipes, Mustard-Herb Chicken Legs - a cross between chicken schnitzel and garlic bread (and it isn't fried). There will be a cool cucumber salad alongside, a perfect contrast to the hot, herby crumbed chicken.⁠

Upon registration, you will get a list of ingredients so you can cook alongside us in real time, or for when you make it later.⁠

Click on the link in our profile to register ☺️

Hope to see you then!⁠
