As stated in Wikipedia, guacamole is an avocado-based dip originally developed by Aztecs. The name comes from the ancient Nahuatl language and originally sounds āhuacamolli. Literally translated it means avocado concoction.
Avocados aren’t linked to traditional Chinese cuisine, so getting them to Chinese households has been a gradual process. However, the Chinese are open to everything new. They eagerly accept and often adopt other cultures and their customs without prejudice. Moreover, when it comes to food, which is a great Chinese passion, Chinese curiosity knows no limits.
There are many variations of this spread but I usually keep this very simple and light version without onion, garlic or other ingredients.
You will need:
2 soft ripe avocados
2 medium solid tomatoes
1 tablespoon of lemon juice
Peel the avocados, remove the pit and crush the flesh carefully with a fork. If you want a less rustic structure, it is possible to use a blender. Chop the tomatoes and add them to the avocado cream. Add lemon juice, salt, pepper and mix. Serve with corn nachos or white bread.
From the TCM point of view:
Avocado is of a refreshing nature and belongs to the element of the earth. It can engender liquid and allay thirst, it is, therefore, a useful part of a diet for people suffering from diabetes mellitus.
