Avocado Cornucopia

What happens when you add cruciferous vegetables to your guacamole?

Something really, really good…

In a pan, heat some avocado oil & lightly cook slices of a habanero or chile pepper. Discards the pepper pieces. Oil will be added to the mix.

Lightly steam broccoli- here I also added purple cauliflower—- lightly steam- very. Lightly. Steam. Cool in an ice bath & chop.

In a bowl, add your avocado (4 or 5), small chopped onion (or half a large one), chopped red bell pepper ( you can add a yellow or orange one if you like), chopped clove of garlic (1 or 2), and about half a cup of loosely chopped cilantro leaves. Add in your broccoli and mix & mash.

Add the spicy oil along with the juice of 1 or 2 limes, tsp of sea salt (to taste).

B-Striebig-IMG_92092This can be served with so many things …try long slices of cucumber, celery stalks and papaya… Whatever you decide, I just hope you hired a mariachi band.

With Love and Delicious Moments,
