I have this bad habit of not eating as many veggies as I know I should. Which is why, as some of you may know, I like to sneak them into my food when I’m not looking. Smoothies are the usual veggie vessel, sneaking in a few cups of kale or spinach per glass. But I’ve also been known to hide vegetables in pies, pasta sauces, and brownies. You could call it a hobby.

Today we’re adding another hidden veggie recipe to the mix…Hidden Spinach Healthy Guacamole! We’re essentially just pureeing spinach into a paste then mixing it into a classic guacamole. The bright green spinach makes this guacamole a showstopper without detracting at all from the mouth-watering guacamole flavor we all know and love.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup packed fresh spinach
  • 3 ripe medium avocados or 2 large
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • ¼ cup finely chopped red onion about 1/4 onion
  • 1 jalapeno deseeded and finely chopped
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • ½ cup chopped tomato about 1 tomato
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  1. With a handheld immersion blender or a food processor, blend spinach, 2 of the avocados, and lime juice until a smooth puree is formed, scraping down the sides to get everything mixed nicely.
  2. Chop the remaining avocado into small chunks, then mix and mash into the puree, along with the onion, jalapeno, and garlic.Once you reach a consistency to your liking, stir in the tomatoes.
  3. Add a pinch of salt and pepper to suit your taste and stir once more to combine.

Notes

To keep guacamole from browning, spoon leftover guac into a bowl and lay plastic wrap directly onto the top of the guacamole, squishing out any air between the guac and plastic wrap (air = browning!)
