broccamole (broccoli guacamole)

October 14, 2012

everyone loves guacamole.

a recent broccoli craving made this recipe stand out.

this is a really clever way to sneak vegetables into snack time – and quick to prepare!


3 cups chopped broccoli
1 jalapeno, chopped (remove seeds… or don’t)
2 green onions
1 tsp olive oil
2 oz cream cheese or goat cheese, or 1 avocado
pinch chili powder and cayenne
fistful cilantro
pinch salt and black pepper
pinch coriander
half a head of roasted garlic
pinch cumin
pinch paprika
squeeze of fresh lime juice

Cook the broccoli in lightly salted water until very soft. Overcook the broccoli slightly.
Drain broccoli well.
Transfer to a food processor. Add the remaining ingredients and process until smooth; add additional olive oil for a smoother texture.


wonder how it’d taste as a hybrid salsa with chunky fresh tomatoes or roasted sweet peppers?
