This recipe is a sort of hybrid of guacamole in that it has your standard guacamole ingredients but with two nutritious hidden companions. In with the creamy avocado, onion and zest lime, sneaky kale and spinach have snuck into this recipe and I promise, classic kale and spinach, always sneaking into places! The kale and spinach give a nutritional boost to this already wholesome recipe, the kale brings fibre, potassium and iron to the table – get it – and the spinach adds even more wonderful vitamins and protein. This vegan, sugar free dip is great to have with crackers, spread on toast or to add to salad bowl.
Ingredients – Serves 4
1/2 cup of kale
1 1/2 cup of spinach
juice of 1/2 lime
1 garlic clove
2 tablespoons of olive oil
1/2 small red onion
1 1/2 avocado, peeled and chopped
pinch of salt, to taste
Starting with the kale and spinach, add all ingredients into a blender and process until a thick until there is a thick and creamy texture, if it feels too thick simply add a bit more oil, one teaspoon at a time.
If you don’t have a blender, smash the avocado with a fork or potato masher in a large bowl and finely chop up the kale, spinach, garlic and onions and mix with the avocado. Mix in the oil, salt and lime juice and stir until well combined.
