Did you know if you mash avocados and then mix ’em with endive and watercress you can make a pretty amazing guac?
No need to run to the market for pre-made guac.
And why am I, after twenty-eight years making this ridiculously easy and delicious guacamole for the very first time?
You’ve probably had regular guacamole at some point of your life or another. I mean, who doesn’t love some creamy guacamole goodness?
Well, dear ones, creamy guac goodness just got a whole lot better.
This guacamole couldn’t be easier to make. All you need is a food processor, a bowl and a nice big spoon. Serve it with anything from tofu to toast. Like your favorite heals, this guac pretty much goes with everything.
As you can clearly see, I like a lotta guac.
And this one’s extra special.
It’s got a bit of endive.
A bit of creamy cashews and avocado.
I kinda like the nice leafy cilantro on top.
I mean, who wouldn’t wanna whip up an easy n’ healthy gluten-free vegetarian recipe?
I know I sure would.
So, go ahead.
Take a seat n’ eat up.
Am I right?
