This chunky, creamy, guacamole or guac”kale”amole is speckled with tiny bits of finely chopped kale! This recipe is one of my favorites from the “sneaky vegetable” collection. If you’ve read through many of my recipes, you know by now that I live for finding ways to sneak in as many veggies as possible into my dishes. We’re all trying to eat more greens, right? What if I told you that you could eat kale and not even know you’re doing it? YES. Look no further than this guac recipe.
Guacamole is probably the best condiment ever invented. It’s perfect as an appetizer, snack or topping on so many things. It’s also super good for you and the addition of chopped kale in this recipe takes the nutritional value to the next level. Fun fact: The fat-soluble vitamins in kale (like Vitamin A) really appreciate you eating it with fat, so your body can better absorb it.
I love how customizable guac is. There’s really no wrong way to eat this combination of ingredients. Don’t like cilantro? Leave it out. Not in a tomatoey mood today? Skip them. It’s all about the mashed avo and kale in this recipe. Honestly, Sometimes I just mix chopped kale into mashed avocado and season it with lime and salt and go on with my business. That being said, the recipe below is meant to be a guideline. It’s recommended to have chips within reach to taste and season accordingly as you go along. This stuff is so good. If you think you don’t like kale, I’m here to change your mind with this one.
Pro tip – make my Pico de Gallo first and then just spoon some of the tomatoes out of that and into the guac. See that clever hack in this video where I make it right on the porch at Middlebury Farms. Don’t forget to SUBSCRIBE to my YouTube Channel for updates on recipe demos.
