- ¼ cup + 1tbsp olive oil
- 1 clove of garlic
- 1½ limes worth of juice
- 4 green cherry tomatoeS
- ¼ cup cilantro
- 2 green onions coarsely chopped
- 1 jalapeño charred, skinned, and with the seeds removed
- Salt to taste
- 1 ripe avocado
Mix all ingredients in a small blender except the avocado. Chop avocado and blend with the other ingredients until smooth. Use the spoon tilt test or fork drip test to get puree consistency.
How to Perform the IDDSI Fork and Spoon Tests
The table above shows the different levels of thickness a food or drink can be. Our goal for the guacamole dip is to reach a level 4 (pureed). In order to check that a food is at that thickness, an IDDSI spoon and fork test can be done.
To do a Fork Drip Test, scoop up the guacamole with a fork. If the guacamole sits in a mound on the fork and does not drip or flow continuously through the fork (a small amount may fall through and form a tail below) then it is the right consistency.
To do a Spoon Tilt Test scoop up the guacamole with a spoon. It should sit in a mound on the spoon and hold its shape. When you tilt the spoon the whole mound should slide off easily with little residue left on the spoon. When it lands on the plate it should hold its form, but may slump or spread slowly.
