Totally Vegan Buzz Verdict: There’s a total wildcard in this one: NO GARLIC. As bizarre as that might seem (guac without garlic is like a beach without sand, right?) it’s deliberate – and it totally works. Our tip? Your guac might taste frighteningly limey at first. No panic: leave it to stand for a bit and it will ‘mellow out’.

Totally Vegan Buzz Verdict: Another super-fast recipe for guacamole, which the addition of cumin in the ingredients gives a nice sexy depth to. Our tip? Definitely let this one stand in the fridge for a couple of hours before you serve it: the cumin and red onion need a chance to infuse.
Totally Vegan Buzz Verdict: A super yummy and very easy vegan guacamole recipe and we’re big fans of the cheeky pinch of chilli. Our tip? We’ve got to be honest, we’re not fans of the mushy tomatoes – the seeds kind of let it down. We get that cherry tomatoes are fiddly to de-seed (unless you can be bothered), so we recommend adding and mixing them in gently at the end.
