I think Spring is in the air!! Can I get a drum roll please? Or a Whoop Whoop!? That's awesome!!!!! I can hear it all the way from here. I knew you'd be in the spirit.
Following a strict Paleo lifestyle can sometime be boring-I hate to say it, but if you don't have your creative thinking cap on-you may end up with the same breakfast every morning. Usually I'll have a smoothie and some hard boiled eggs for protein, but ugh, hard boiled eggs can be bland. I needed some pizazz, ya know? Wanted to brighten up my life with taste.
The night before work I began to prepare…what do I have in my fridge that can compliment my eggs? I had recently seen a magazine article with different variations of deviled eggs, that was vague in my mind, and I really didn't feel like breaking out the food processor…
I had Cilantro, my Goodie herb of the week. I had Avocados (something I could never live without). Sea Salt and Black Pepper are staples that I would always have…And I had bought a lemon last week while grocery shopping. Perfect! Cilantro Guacamole!!
Homemade Guacamole always saves the day, and always adds some pizazz to any dish. And it's so easy to make!! And it certainly does not compare to store bought in any way shape or form. I often make homemade guacamole and I make different every time! Don't have Cilantro? Use Parsley! Don't have fresh herbs? Use dried! Just know it's soooo much better fresh.
WHAT YOU NEED:
2 large eggs
Salt and Pepper to taste
1/4 slice of Lemon
Small handful of fresh Cilantro Leaves
Boil eggs on medium heat for about 15-20 minutes
Once cooked remove from heat and put in a pan of cold water to immediately cool
Cut each egg in half and place on a plate
Cut avocado and spoon flesh into a bowl
Add the juice of 1/4-3/8 slice of lemon
Add a small handful of fresh Cilantro
Pinch of sea salt
Pinch of black pepper
Mash with spoon or fork
Spoon a dollop of guacamole onto each egg
Makes 4 egg halves, with guacamole leftovers.
I like using Cage-free, no antibiotics, and Organic eggs
I usually buy non organic Avocados because they are in a shell and less likely to be harmed by nasty chemicals and fertilizers.
Organic herbs are the best and free of chemicals and fertilizers
With the amount of guacamole made, this could work on approximately 5 eggs cut in half and topped with Guacamole.
Enjoy! xx Julie
