broccomole (broccoli guacamole)


we love broccoli and we love guacamole, so we thought we would give "broccomole" a try.  we made this dip over the weekend and served it when we were visiting ryan's family.

this dip is so simple to whip up.  there are only a few ingredients and it only takes a few minutes to throw it together.  it's vegetarian too!

you can serve this dip with crackers, chips, pita, or toasted bread.  it will be a crowd pleaser at your next gathering for sure!
