Ingredient List

  • 50g rocket, plus extra to garnish
  • 1 garlic clove, chopped
  • 3 spring onions, trimmed and chopped
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 3 ripe avocados, peeled, stones removed and flesh chopped
  • 2 tablespoons freshly chopped flat-leaf parsley
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt


  1. Place the rocket, garlic, spring onion, lemon juice, avocado and parsley in a food processor and pulse until almost smooth, scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed. Transfer to a serving bowl and stir in the salt. Season with freshly ground black pepper, if you like.
  2. Cover the surface closely with cling film and refrigerate for 1 hour to allow the flavours to blend. Garnish with the extra rocket and some freshly ground black pepper and serve.

Expert Tips

  • Watercress can be used in place of rocket, if you like, as it has a similar peppery flavour. Or try a mix of both.
  • For a more pronounced lemon flavour add 1 teaspoon finely grated lemon zest or 50g drained and chopped preserved lemon.
  • Don’t just dip! Make a delicious pasta salad by stirring a few spoonfuls of the guac into cold cooked gluten-free penne pasta along with an extra squeeze of lemon juice. Add flaked poached salmon fillet and cooked peeled prawns, if you like.
