Chef Luke makes guacamole with his brother
This week Chef Luke welcomed his brother, Gavin into the kitchen with him. With all the holidays coming up Luke decided to make his favorite party food...guacamole. He's serving his guacamole...in a hollowed out pumpkin for a Halloween Party. Pretty perfect.
First things first...we needed some avocados. Luke went with Gavin and Kathleen to the supermarket to pick these up before getting started so they had to be ripe. Ripe avocados are soft when you squeeze them but not too soft or they will be brown when you cut inside.
To cut the guacamole you want to take your knife and circle it around the entire avocado. Then you twist and it will come apart. You can stab the pit with your knife to pull it out. Just be careful!
Once you've got the avocado split in half, take a spoon and go around the skin to scoop out the flesh. Or just squeeze it out like Chef Luke and Gavin discovered they could do...
Once you've got your avocado in a bowl, you want to hit it with some lime juice so it doesn't turn brown. Then you mash, smash n mash.
While Luke was mashing...Gavin was busy chopping tomatoes to add in next. Using a child safe knife he chopped up plum tomatoes into cubes.
They added tomatoes, chopped red onion, a teaspoon of minced garlic, salt and pepper. Now STIR.
To serve the guacamole dip they filled up a hollowed out pumpkin. How festive is this for fall? Perfect for a Halloween party or playdate.
