Surprisingly excellent - tastes very much like Guacamole minus the calories! I would use less garlic next time an dadd cayenne pepper to spice it up. Read More

We thought this was just ok. The texture isn't great and it just wasn't creamy enough. I'll stick to my regular guac recipe. Thanks anyway. Read More

Serve chilled. Not bad but I like guacamole better. I'd make it again though. Read More

This tasted more like "real" guacamole than I thought it would. You can add seasonings to your personal preference just as you would a guacamole recipe. Guacamole is one of my favorite foods and I could eat a tub of it if it were healthier for me. I thought this would be the answer but although this is healthier I got tired of it after eating only a little bit. By the way...the next day it was still green and had a nice texture but the broccoli taste was much stronger. Read More

I don't care for cilantro so I omitted it and found the recipe to be fairly good. Read More

Very good an healthy alternative. Love the zing from the garlic and onion. Next time I'll add more hot sauce (though I tend to like A LOT of hot sauce). Read More

Surprisingly really good. Great idea. I did NOT use a whole head of broccoli. More like half. The hard part was chopping up the steamed broccoli because I didn't use a food processor. Read More

I couldn't get the broccoli to mash properly - next time using a blender would be more efficient. The taste was excellent though- Read More
