If you have gone through the sections of this blog you would quickly figure out that I love salads. But there is one that I really cannot chew down. The salad with fresh kale. Somehow, I find it really hard to keep chewing it though it may have the best of nutrition or most wonderful dressing. Either way, I am out. However, I love the green idea of kale and it is one of the easiest available greens for me. So, it still tops my list of good greens.
Here is one way I can have it –kale sandwiches with Mediterranean spices.
I am tolerable to kale in my smoothies too. It is a work in progress, but getting there. When I was thinking of more ways to add it in this is the thought that ran in my head. Most kale salads have avocado in them So how about a handful added to a good base of guacamole, say make it kale guacamole?
Let’s get to make kale guacamole.
To start with I resorted to the dark leaf, deep green curly kale that was cleaned and deveined. I went a couple of more steps to make that kale not do difficult to chew on. Pulsed it till it was cut really smooth in the food processor before adding the avocado. Then for the guacamole, I love the simplest form if the guacamole to use as a dip.Thedetails of the ingredients and quantities for kale guacamole are in this recipe card.
