For this wonderful dip, fresh broccoli is combined with sour cream, lemon juice and a pinch of chili powder. Great to serve with chips and raw vegetables.

I read the reviews but I still wanted to make it because I am looking for healthy recipes. So I (1) added 1 clove minced garlic(if you like garlic add more (2) I used the white part of the green onion for the onion called for in the recipe and then used the green part to sprinkle over the top. It helped. Read More

Terribly bland-I added three times the amount of chili powder with the hopes of perking up the flavor with no luck. Read More

Perhaps to cure the blandness you could use lime juice instead of lemon and add a little fresh (seeded) japeno and a little fresh cilantro. Throw in a clove of garlic. How about a tad of white vinegar? Those are all key to real guacamole so surely they will perk up the broccoli version! Read More

I found that adding in about 2 Tbsp. FF or 1/3 less fat cream cheese thickened this recipe up and made it superb!! Read More

I found this recipe to be a bit bland. I tried to add some seasonings and a little salt but it didn't help. It certainly is healthy though---and pretty easy (although a bit messy) to make. Read More

I used raw broccoli instead and it was WONDERFUL. Great snack for those of us that like something healthy and lower in fat! Read More

This recipe turned out tasty, but not as much reminiscent of guacamole as I was expecting. However, I modified it, which may account for the difference in taste, which was unique, but pleasant. I used nonfat, plain yogurt in place of the sour cream and mayonnaise, and I added lime juice, extra chili powder and onion, some garlic salt, and cumin. It is slightly spicy, and it's refreshing, as a dip with wheat crackers. Read More

My husband just could not believe this was broccoli. I used lime juice instead of lemon because that is what I had. I also added one jalapeno pepper because we like spicy things otherwise I followed the recipe exactly and it was great. Read More
