Perfect ‘Stachio Guac

This is the second most-perfect smashed avocado I think I’ve ever had. The first being the Bazooka-Limon guacamole from my beloved El Vez, which is sadly not Slow Carb friendly (though several things on the menu are). The recipe I created is a very similar take on guac, but is of course diet friendly… and won’t run you $13/bowl.

Ingredients:
1-2 ripe avocados
1/2 packet True Lemon or juice from 1 lemon (use half if only one avocado)
10-15 shelled pistachios, salted & roasted

Seasoning:
Salt (to taste)
1/2 tsp Parsley
1/2 tsp Red Pepper Flakes (optional, but recommended)

Cut the avocado in half and remove the pit. Remove deliciousness from skin and place in a medium-sized bowl (use a good bowl with a round bottom, not one with hard-to-reach corners or flat spots). Add salt and lemon crystals to the avocado and mash with the back of a large fork until smooth or blended to desired level of chunkiness.

On a cutting board, place a small handful of the shelled pistachios and cover with a paper towel. Using a meat tenderizer or serrated knife, gently smash/chop the pistachios until they break up into small chunks and dust – you want a nice mix of both so the flavor spreads throughout with the occasional yummy crunch.

Fold the pistachios, parsley, and red pepper flakes into the mashed avocado mixture and voila: Perfect ‘Stachio Guac!

Note: True Lime works just as well and is also really good in club soda if you are missing Sprite.
