Default mockamole

Here is the mockamole (asparagus guac) recipe again:

A friend just shared this recipe with me. I think I'll be trying it. A lot of online recipes call for adding some sour cream or yogurt. I'm thinking about using an avocado & cutting out my olive oil for the day.



Asparagus Guacamole
2 bags of steam in bag asparagus
1 lime (or 3 packets of true lime)

1/2-1 bunch of cilantro, finely chopped
2-3 cloves of garlic, chopped
1 small to medium tomato, chopped (optional)
Salt, cumin powder, cayenne pepper (or Jalapeno) to taste

Steam asparagus in bags, overcook a little
cut in 1 in pieces, drain on papertowels, squeeze dry and let cool

Put asparagus in blender with lime juice, cilantro, garlic and tomato and give it a whirl.
Season to taste and chill

Treat asparagus just as you would avocado.
You hardly can tell the difference and it fits into all IP phases!!!

Serve it with taco seasoned ground sirloin or grilled chicken breast with
cilantro lime slaw in lettuce wrappers.


Cilantro Lime Slaw

2-3 cups of finely shredded green cabbage
Juice of 1 lime
Olive oil
1/2 tsp cumin seed
Salt and white pepper to taste
(hmm...I think there is supposed to be some cilantro here, too! ha! )

Mix and chill.
enjoy!
