The Brocamole, or broccoli fortified guacamole, is a hybrid dip made in heaven. Served with the raw stems of the broccoli, this zero-waste dip takes the avocado crowd pleaser and elevates it to new heights. Serve at a party, or on a piece of toast for breakfast.
1 large broccoli
1 large avocado
1 brown onion
4 cloves of garlic
1/2 bunch of mint
50ml olive oil
Finely slice onion and garlic.
Heat a tick-based pan with a small amount of oil on medium heat.
Gently sweat down the onion and garlic with a couple of pinches of salt, until they become soft and translucent.
Thinly cut or slice the head of the broccoli with a sharp knife, so it becomes very fine.
Add to the pan, combined and keep stirring for 1 minute.
Pour in 1/4 cup of water and place a lid on the pan, so the broccoli gently steams.
When the broccoli becomes tender, take the lid off and set aside until it becomes cool, but not cold.
Meanwhile, blitz the avocado in a food processor with a splash of oil and lemon juice and salt to taste.
When the broccoli has cooled place with the mint in a food processor and blend until smooth, slowly adding the rest of the oil, until emulsified.
Pour the mix in a bowl and refrigerate.
When the mix is entirely cool combine with the avocado.
Season to taste.
