So these fancy friends of mine got me a beefy mortar and pestle for my birthday. I named it Brutus. It smashes things. Cracks, crushes, and mashes things. Yes, indeed. Brutus really throws his weight around in the kitchen. I don't mind, less muscle use for me.
Brutus makes great guac for two. Chop up one avocado, five cherry tomatoes, a thick slice of onion, and four basil leaves - or you could use cilantro.
