charred broccoli gaucamole

did you guys see the controversy in the news about adding peas to your guacamole? long story short is that the new york times posted a guacamole recipe that included peas. seems harmless to me. apparently not! america was outraged - even president obama commented on the matter! totally ridiculous in my opinion, especially since i'm currently obsessed with this charred broccoli guacamole i've been making once per week for the last month.

i first saw the recipe in a magazine while getting my hair done. i took a quick picture of the article - realizing later i only clipped a picture of the ingredients - not the directions. i couldn't find the recipe again online, so i just sort of winged it. 

easy dish, endless possibilities, and hello to more veggies! YUM.

recipe adapted from real simple

1 large bunch of broccoli, cut into florets
1 jalapeno, diced
2 ripe avocados, pitted and peeled
1/2 cup chopped red onion
3-6 tablespoons fresh lime juice
1/4 cup chopped cilantro (if desired)
kosher salt
tortilla chips for serving


1. heat grill to high.

2. place broccoli florets on grill pan, and grill for roughly 10-15 minutes until soft and charred. 
stir a couple times. remove from grill and cool.

3. meanwhile, mash avocados, jalapenos, onion, and cilantro (if using). 
add salt, pepper and lime juice to taste.

4. once charred broccoli is cooled, chop finely. 
add broccoli into gauc mixture. mix well.

5. serve with chips.
