Vichyssoise! It's a delicious potato and leek soup you make by emulsifying everything in the pot after cooking. Traditionally a chilled soup, but I prefer it hot this time of year. It's basically chopped leeks, onion, garlic, and potato, with cream and chicken stock as the base. Recipes are everywhere and it's been around forever.

Enjoy the hand blender! There's a lot of cool stuff to do with it.

could also do salsa. the rudimentary ingredients (as far as i know) are

  • onion
  • tomato
  • white spirit vinegar + lime juice in equal part
  • birds eye chilli or something similar
  • salt

you want to blend it in a few short bursts, so that theres still chunks and the entire thing isnt liquidised

i made this tonight.

used one large lime and a satsuma and didn't add sugar (because satsumas are sweet) also added cinammon but i bet some star anise would be good in the sauce. think this sauce could go on lots of stuff.

your palette must be pretty low if you need *big* flavours in anything at all in order for it to have any kind of "flavour" you can register

even lettuce has flavour. people who overlook that probably have detrimental eating habits and rely heavily on flavour enhancers.

don't blame others on the fact that your tongue is weak

and garlic is not a *big* flavor it is a background aromatic

Then why make guac at all? Lemon is pretty strong in flavor, so is onion, so are tomatoes when being compared to fucking avocados! California avocados have a slightly sweet, grassy/vegetal, creamy/buttery taste that is distinct, but somewhat bland even when overripe! That's the reason it is almost always found as a condiment/topping to compliment rather than overpower. Although Alton Brown did dedicate an Ep. of his show soley to Avocados, showcasing that they are more than capable of being the main star (avocado ice cream!) If you're really so staunch in that frame of mind, you should be following bland, basic, caveman type diet.... like the primitive beast you are. Or maybe you're a fucking undead vampire scourge!? Baby vamp gonna cry? Baby vamp want a bottle?!

ITT: Americans don't know guac.

As a Spanish person and my mother knows how to make that shit and taught me how. Guac needs to be a little tangy, but just a slight you can taste. Garlic has no business in guac and if you are not putting lime and salt with a just a slight of vinegar you might as well just eat it raw.

Depends on where you are. In Florida a lot of the Latinos call themselves Spanish. In Texas if you call a Latino Spanish you'll get shanked.

OP you can make some DOPE EASY black bean soup with one of those.

  1. buy dried black beans and boil them like forever
  2. add beef bouillon (I like "Better Than Bouillon" brand, it's good shit)
  3. maybe jalapenos if you want or something
  4. remove some beans if you want a mix of blended and whole beans
  5. season to taste and blend the bejeezus out of it

Just blend an avocado into ranch dressing with a pinch of s+p and lavender. It's good for plating and on top of salmon or mahi.
