Today’s twist on guacamole is to keep it simple, green and pumpkin seed infused.
My Pumpkin Seed Guacamole is simple enough to let those brilliant avocados shine - yet unique enough to intrigue. This guacamole has a buttery, nutty accent of flavor from adding in rustic bits of pepitas, aka pumpkin seeds.
Good-for-you pumpkin seeds are rich in protein, iron, zinc, copper, magnesium and healthy fats. So load up.
This dip is perfect for your Super Bowl or anti-Super Bowl party. Try this healthy-delicious dip. And enter my SoCal Avocado giveaway to win a 12-pack of fresh, fabulous, shipped-to-your-door avocados!..
2 avocados, remove pit/skin and cube (I used SoCal avocados)
1 red onion, diced
1/2 cup chopped cilantro
1 serrano pepper, diced
1 lime, squeezed
1 lemon, squeezed
1/4 tsp salt
3 Tbsp raw pumpkin seeds - minced in Vitamix for 1 minute
Lighten it up! Lighten up the calories by subbing out one avocado for 1-2 tomatoes - or other diced veggies. Try carrots, celery, zucchini - even sweet accents like apple or crunchy jicama.
1. Prep ingredients. Blend pumpkin seeds in Vitamix for about a minute. For more flavor, you can toast the seeds in a dry frying pan over high heat for a minute.
2. Add all ingredients to a large bowl and toss well. Mash avocados for a creamier texture or leave as rough cubes for chunky guacamole.
