1/2 medium onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 teaspoons toasted sesame seeds
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon curry powder, or to taste
3 large ripe Hass avocados, halved, pitted, and scooped out
1 teaspoon fresh lime juice
1/2 teaspoon soy sauce
2 tablespoons chopped cilantro
Fresh cracked black pepper, to taste
Kosher or sea salt, to taste (optional)
1 medium tomato, seeded and diced
How to Make It
Heat a skillet over medium heat. Add oil and then stir in the onions, garlic, and sesame seeds. Cook until lightly brown and soft, about 2 minutes and then remove from heat. Stir in the curry powder.
In a bowl, mash the avocado with a fork until it is nearly at your desired consistency. Stir in the curry-onion mixture, lime juice, soy sauce, cilantro and pepper. Season with additional salt if desired.
Gently fold in the tomatoes. Serve immediately or else press a piece of plastic wrap flush into the top of the guacamole, refrigerate and serve preferably within 24 hours.
