I just received Alissa's book (finally) last night:D and made the guacamole dip that she illustrates on her video. Mine is brown in color instead of that beautiful avocado green as seen in the video. Does everyone else's turn brown too?
Loved the video and can't wait to share it with my daughter!!

After you have made it,,,,,ALWAYS PUT THE SEEDS BACK IN THE BOWL and leave them there until you finish the Guacomole........I don't use Lemon Juice in mine....I like mine PURE ( mostly Lemon juice is used to keep the color) that is why I use the seeds.
Although it is Brown it is still ok.........

your's might have been ripe. even if the green part is brown, it is still good. you'll know when an avocado goes bad.
Mine is usually a green unless I add way more tomatoes than she does... Your avocado was probably the really, really soft ripe with some bits of brown inside.
My husband spent some of his childhood on a farm with fruit trees in Brazil, so he is the Master Expert on such things. :) He tells me when they're perfect, which is usually just soft but NOT mushy on the outside, and they're always so beautifully green and yellow inside.

I think I figured it out. Instead of pouring the nama shoyu on the guacamole after I put it on the mushroom I mixed it in with the dip during the food processing. Do we have a "slapping the forehead" or "duh" smiley? :o

Nice tip! I'll try to remember that! Thanks!
Many traditional guac recipes have lemon or lime juice in them. That will preserve the green and give it a little extra zing.
