All day eating seems to be fully justified during Christmas. At no other time of year is it socially acceptable to have had at least three meals by 10am but for some reason, around Christmas, that even seems like you might have been holding back a little! It’s for this reason that crisps and dips reign supreme at this time of year; there is no food combination more versatile that you can take with you from morning to night as a fully appropriate snack, and let’s be honest, even dinner – there’s no judgement here! So, we’ve taken the classic guacamole, and added a little Jolly Festive spin to give you the ever creatively named … Festive Guacamole!
Whilst we may not win any awards in the naming stakes, we know that this ticks all the flavour and texture boxes; the sharpness from the lime, the crunch from the pomegranate jewels, and the smooth creamy goat’s cheese; it’s all we could want from a dip! Plus, it truly is the easiest thing to put together!
The only downside? It does not sit well for extended periods of time. Uh oh, guess you’ll just have to finish it in one sitting!
- 4 large, ripe avocados
- 1 lime, juiced
- 2tbsp coriander, finely chopped
- 3/4tsp salt
- 35g soft goat’s cheese
- pomegranate arils to top
- In a large bowl, mash together the avocados with the lime juice until almost smooth. Leave a few small-medium chunks of avocado to add texture.
- Add the coriander and salt, and mix to combine. Crumble in the goat’s cheese and stir to ensure it is evenly distributed. Top with the pomegranate arils.
- Happy dipping!
