Ingredients
  

  • 1 avocado
  • ¼ large green pepper/capsicum roughly chopped
  • 1 clove garlic peeled
  • ¼ c | small handful coriander/cilantro roughly chopped
  • ⅓ c | large handful handful parsley roughly chopped
  • Juice of ½ lime
  • ½ teaspoon Worcester sauce - optional
  • ⅓ c | 80ml olive oil

Instructions
 

  • Place everything in a blender and blend until smooth. It’s that simple!
  • If you want a slightly chunky dip, then just pulse a couple of times.
  • Taste and adjust seasoning, then serve.
  • Keep covered in the fridge for up to 2 days (for best way to stop it going brown see notes below).

Notes

Avocado - Hass or Shepherd avocados both work well. You need ripe avocados for this recipe.
Olive oil - you can also use corn oil.
Alternative to lime juice - use 1 teaspoon white wine vinegar.
Fresh Parsley - flat leaf parsley.
Worcestershire sauce - is optional. For vegetarian/vegan and gluten free guasacaca, leave the Worcestershire out. 
Use Ripe avocados. When you feel the avocado it should yield to gentle but firm pressure.
Don't like raw garlic: Boil the clove of garlic with a little water in a small saucepan for a couple of minutes, until slightly soft. Then blend in the dip as per the recipe. This takes the pungent raw garlic taste – and aftertaste – away.
Storage: press cling film/clingwrap down on to the top of the dip to touch the avocado, and prevent air from getting to it. It will keep in the fridge for up to 2 days. The addition of lime/vinegar means it should keep it's green colour longer than guacamole.
