Amazing Asparagus Guacamole…so good…so healthy!!

 

This recipe is AMAZING, and I’m not saying that just to say it. It is by far one of the best takes or healthier versions of a recipe that I have tried making in a long time. Guacamole can be eaten in so many ways, as a dip/spread/sauce or just as it is. I fully believe that avocado’s are a superfood, however, they are high in calories, so when your craving something to snack on or add to a meal, its hard to sometimes work in the extra calories if your are monitoring your intake. With this recipe, you don’t even need to worry about it. I have never heard of anyone gaining too much weight from eating asaparagus, and if you know someone, please I’m all ears!! I hope you enjoy this recipe and please know that I couldn’t create a video on this because the entire bowl lasted about 10 minutes with my family! I hope yours will enjoy it too.

Ingredients

2 Bunches of Asparagus (I cut a good 3rd off the bottom)

Juice from 1 Lime

1/4 Medium Red Onion chopped into very tiny pieces

1/2 cup Chick Peas

1 Medium Tomato

1 Tbsp Garlic (paste/minced)

1 Serrano Pepper (seeded and chopped)

1 Jalapeno Pepper (seeded and chopped)

Fresh Cilantro ( I use the quick use ones that are flash frozen) about 1-2 tbsp to taste

Sea Salt & Ground Black Pepper to taste

 

 

First steam the asparagus however you like, I usually add water and microwave in a glass bowl for 3-5 minutes until the asparagus is tender, but not mushy, next add them to a food processor or similar type of appliance. Add the chick peas to the asparagus and blend/chop until its completely combined and the texture is smooth.

 

Next add garlic, lime juice, chopped peppers, salt and black pepper. Blend again until smooth.

 

Next combine the mixture from the food processor to the chopped tomato, red onion and cilantro.

Combine well and add salt or pepper to taste and serve with whatever your in the mood for! It is also extremely versatile so you can spread it on toast, use it on chicken/fish or serve it up on top of salads. Keeps about 5 days in the fridge. Enjoy!!
