#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

To all the people who called me a Zionist this week, thank you.

I am a proud Zionist so I appreciate the compliment!

I am fed up atm with allllll the lies being told and allllll the words being misused.

So can we please talk about the word ZIONISM?

If I’m a Zionist it means I believe that Israel has a right to exist as the homeland for the Jewish people. That’s it.

I believe that Israel should NOT be wiped off the map.

I believe in Israel’s existence, but not necessarily with all of its policies and government decisions.

I believe the Palestinian people have a right to create their own homeland. It’s a bloody shame they didn’t take what was offered in 1947, again in 1967 and beyond.

I believe in a TWO STATE SOLUTION - a Palestinian state alongside a Jewish state.

I believe the Jewish people deserve a safe haven from violence, antisemitism and genocide.

And yes, I do think if you’re an anti-zionist you’re most likely anti-semitic.

Till next week friends, shabbat shalom and a peaceful weekend to all.

If you want to make Edith’s Plum Cake, you can find it in It’s Always About the Food. I’ve also put a link in my profile to the online recipe.
