Guacamole with Caramelised Ginger & Orange

Recipe from Tiny Kitchen Feast published by Hardie Grant Explore

Eating this reminds me of Baja Mexico because this recipe was born on the beach at one of our pop-up dinners. Creating this was a happy accident and I don’t believe I can eat regular guacamole anymore. Most people who have tried this say the same thing. It’s definitely one of my signature creations and quite a crowd-pleaser.

› 1-2 tsp olive oil
› 1 tsp fresh grated ginger
› 1 garlic clove, smashed into a paste
› 2 ripe avocados
› Juice of 1 orange and ¼ tsp zest
› 1 tbsp fresh cilantro (coriander), finely chopped
› ½ tbsp agave

  1. Add the oil to a small saucepan and set over a medium heat.
  2. Add the ginger and garlic to the pan and let it caramelise for about 5 minutes, or until the ginger is toasty brown and the garlic is fragrant.
  3. Meanwhile, scoop the avocado flesh into a bowl and smash with the zest of the orange, cilantro, and a pinch of salt.
  4. Add the orange juice and the agave to the pan and let it reduce by about one quarter, about 3 minutes.
  5. Add the ginger mixture to the avocado and mix well.

Serve with tortilla chips, fry bread, or throw it onto a rice bowl.

Serves 4-6
