Whenever I host a dinner party or a date night at home, I enjoy preparing my own snack. Due to my love of snacking constantly, homemade snack becomes more important (cost and health wise) to reduce my reliance of the store-bought version.
We are no strangers to homemade guacamole. It is an easy dip to whip up and going to taste all fresh and wonderful as compared to the ready-made ones in the suparmarket. My favourite pairing with guacamole has always been corn chips until I found this recipe from Taste.com.au.
Guacamole with Turkish Bread “Chips”
(mainly adapted from taste.com.au)
- 450g (15o oz) loaf Turkish bread
- olive oil cooking spray
- 2 avocados, peeled, stones removed
- 1 small lime, juiced
- 1 tomato, finely chopped
- 1 small shallot, finely diced (I used about 1 tsp of finely diced Tuscan onion)
- Salt to taste
- Fresh coriander as garnish
To make the “chips” – Preheat oven to 180°C. Cut bread into 4 pieces. Cut each piece in half through the centre. Cut into short fingers. Arrange bread on 2 baking trays (I baked them in two batches). Spray lightly with oil. Bake for 15 minutes, or until toasted.
To make the guacamole: Use a fork to mash avocados until almost smooth. Stir in lime juice, tomato, and onion. Season with salt. Serve avocado dip with Turkish chips.
