Squash Blossom Guacamole and Giveaway…

by Amie on March 12, 2010

Last night, I had a bit of time on my hands and decided to once again get creative in my kitchen.  I recently purchased a few beautiful squash blossoms and I was yearning for a guacamole to have in my fridge for the weekend, therefore I decided to make the best of my blossoms and whip up a tasty guac with a pinch of saffron and chili powder to add a nice kick. The end result: Delishhhy.   Let’s just say there isn’t much left as I was tasting it all night long…


  • Pinch of saffron threads
  • 4 ripe avocados, peeled and pitted
  • 3 squash blossoms
  • 2 Tbsp. lime juice
  • 2 Tbsp. lemon juice
  • 1 tsp. lime zest
  • 1/2 cup chopped red onion
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 1/2 tsp. chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp. apple cider vinegar
  • Dash of sea salt
  • Dash of pepper


  • Toast saffron threads in a frying pan.
  • Mash in a mortar and pestle.
  • In a medium sized bowl, mash avocados with saffron and squash blossoms.
  • Fold in remaining ingredients.
  • Serve chilled.
  • Enjoy!

I’d try the probiotic hummus!

You know, I’ve never tried squash blossoms. Somehow they sort of scare me a bit. I don’t know why. No rational reasoning. As for the Wildwood Organics. I have never seen this brand actually. There are several things I’d like to try like the Hickory BBQ Smoked Tofu and the Spicy Southwest Veggie Burger.

Oh I’d try one of the baked sprouted tofus! They’d be great for lunch!

I’m intrigued by their nori seaweed tempeh. Sounds really interesting!

I’ve never had tempeh before so I’d like to try that. The shitake mushroom burgers sound good too. I love mushrooms.
