Guacamole with Feta, Pistachios, and Pomegranate Seeds
  • 3 avocados
  • 2 tbsp lime juice (about 1 lime)
  • 1 tbsp chopped cilantro
  • 1/2 tsp minced garlic (about 1 clove)
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/2 onion, diced
  • 1/4 cup crumbled feta (or to your liking)
  • 1/4 cup pistachio pieces (or to your liking)
  • seeds from one-quarter or one-half of a pomegranate (or to your liking)
  1. Cut avocados in half and remove peels and pits. Place avocado in a bowl and add lime juice, cilantro, garlic, salt, cayenne pepper, and cumin. Using a potato masher (or whatever kitchen gadget will do the trick - I used a meat tenderizer), mash up the avocado until it's mostly smooth with a few chunks remaining and lime juice and spices are well mixed. Stir in onion until equally distributed.
  2. Before serving, sprinkle feta crumbles, pistachios, and pomegranate seeds over top of guacamole (or stir in if you'd like!)
As written, this guacamole is very mildly spicy from the cayenne pepper. Feel free to increase or decrease the quantity depending on your tastes.
