Sure, it breaks from tradition, but sunflower greens infuse guacamole with fresh, nutty flavor. Beyond using as a dip for tortilla chips or sliced vegetables, try using this guac as a spread for toasted bread and top with roasted chicken, fried eggs, black beans, or smoked salmon.

 

INGREDIENTS

2 avocados

Juice of 1/2 lime

1/4 tsp (1 mL) salt

2/3 cup (160 mL) roughly chopped sunflower shoots

1/4 cup (60 mL) finely chopped red onion

1/2 jalapeno, finely chopped

 

DIRECTIONS

Place avocado, lime juice, and salt in bowl

Mash into a chunky mixture, and stir in sunflower shoots, red onion, and jalapeno.
