There are almost as many ways to make guacamole as there are cooks who enjoy making it. At the Los Angeles restaurant Bar Amá, celery puree is the secret ingredient. No one will be able to guess what’s in the guacamole, but everyone will agree it’s delicious.

Ingredients:

  • 2 celery stalks, trimmed
  • 1/2 tsp. chopped garlic
  • 2 Tbs. water
  • Kosher salt, to taste
  • 4 ripe Hass avocados, pitted
  • 1/4 cup (2 fl. oz./60 ml) fresh lime juice, or more as needed
  • 2 tsp. minced serrano chile
  • 2 Tbs. minced fresh cilantro

Directions:

In a blender, combine the celery, garlic, water, and 1/2 tsp. salt. Puree until smooth.

Measure out 1/4 cup (2 fl. oz./60 ml) of the celery puree; discard the remaining celery puree or reserve for another use. It will keep in the refrigerator for up to 2 days.

Cut the avocados in half, remove the pits and scoop the flesh into a large bowl. Add the 1/4 cup celery puree, the lime juice, chile, cilantro and 2 tsp. salt. Using a large fork or potato masher, mash the ingredients until they are thoroughly combined but the mixture is not completely smooth. Taste and adjust the seasoning with more salt and lime juice. Serve immediately. Makes about 3 1/2 cups.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best. Guacamole. Ever I am currently dining table-less and a few friends said they were stopping by. I decided to make this as part of an appetiser and cocktail spread before going out. Everyone raved. "What's in this?" they kept asking. I'm a huge fan of Open Kitchen products and all the recipes I've tried make me look like an accomplished cook. The only thing I'll do different is add a little red onion to the purée because I like it with an oniony hum. Please bring us more of these delicious recipes W-S.
