So if you’ve learned to love avocados as much as I have, this recipe is totally for you. And if you haven’t, here’s your hope. No force feeding necessary.
Plumped up Kale Guacamole
Perfect excuse to eat a heaping serving or the entire recipe of guacamole. Makes 3-4 cups of guacamole. Dairy, sugar, and gluten free.
4-5 stalks of kale
juice of half a lemon
Juice of half a lime
Large handful of fresh cilantro
3/4 cup water (optional)
1 garlic clove, minced
Salt and Cayenne Pepper to taste
1 small tomato
1/4 red or white onion
In a blender or food processor combine avoacodo, kale, cilantro, and juices from the lemon and lime. Start blending and slowly stream in water until combined but still a bit chunky. I needed about 3/4 cup of water to loosen it up but if you have a good blender you may find you need less. Remove mixture from the blender and put into a mixing bowl. Mix in spices and garlic. Taste and adjust seasoning. I added lots of salt and extra garlic too.
Chop tomato and onion and fold into guacamole.
Makes 3-4 cups of guacamole.
