Asparagus ‘amole

One of my readers, Lorraine Trentini, left this recipe as a comment~ so I had to give it a try! She wrote “good enough to fool you!”

This is what the finished product looked like—->

Asparagus Guacamole

1 1/2 pd asparagus, trimmed
1 tsp cumin
1 tbsp reduced-calorie mayo
1 tbsp fresh lime juice
1/4 cup cilantro, coarsely chopped
3 med scallions, thinly sliced (or red onion)
1 med. jalapeno pepper, minced
1 med. garlic clove, minced
1/8 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
S&P to taste
1/8 tsp hot pepper sauce (optional)

Bring large pot of water to boil. Add asparagus and cook until tender , about 10 minutes. Drain.

Place asparagus into food processor and puree until smooth. Stir in remaining ingredients and serve. Yields 1/4 cup per serving.

It fooled the kids—->                                                                                                                                                                                                                        They gobbled it up like it was the normal  guacamole I always make 🙂                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                               It kind of fooled the husband—->              

He took a few bites and then I
told him that there wasn’t any avocado in
it.  He looked puzzled :/  I told him it was
made from asparagus, and he said, “Well
the color is off and the texture is off, but
it is good.  I just prefer avocados to be
avocados and asparagus to be asparagus.”

Give it a try.  It is a tasty, fresh and super easy dip.  Grab some asparagus from your local Farmer’s Market this weekend-  it is amazing right now!
