Broccomole: Broccoli Guacamole

 

It’s broccoli guacamole. You’re skeptical, I can tell. But this is really great, and with a creaminess that was slightly shocking, I will be making this again.

And, if you set a serving size at an ounce, as Livestrong is telling me to do, it’s only 22 calories a serving. And only about 250 calories if I eat the entire bowl, which I am prone to doing.

I love guacamole. I profess honest culinary devotion to avocados and guacamole. It is chocked full of healthy fats, vitamins, and protein. A great food that can not be improve upon. This recipe isn’t about improving guacamole. It’s a new food, a lower calorie creamy green dip that is about 1/3 the calories of that guacamole I love. But with twice the protein and less fat.

And broccoli is known cancer fighter, bone strengthener, cardiovascular health champion, bone-fide superfood and one of the most nutrient dense foods on the planet. We could all stand to be a wee bit addicted to a bowl of this stuff.

And it was so tasty, I ate it for lunch. And dinner. It’s like a dip with a mission, you don’t even have to feel bad about it. You are preventing heart disease and stroke one bite at a time. Really, it’s like medicine.

 

This recipe was inspired by Ludo Lefebvre. While giving an interview about his book, Ludo Bites, he spoke about a Broccomole he made. This is my version.

 

Roasted Garlic & Parmesan Beer Cheese Dip

Ingredients

  • 2 large heads of garlic
  • 2 tbs olive oil
  • 12 oz cream cheese
  • 1 1/2 cup Reggiano or Parmesan cheese, plus an additional 1/4 cup for top
  • 6 oz smoked Gouda or smoked mozzarella cheese
  • 1 cup Saison or IPA beer
  • 1 tsp red chili sauce (such as Sriracha)
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1 tbs cornstarch (very important. Keeps the dip from separating)
  • 1/4 cup chopped scallions (green onions)

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 425.
  2. Cut the top tip of each head garlic off, just enough to expose all of the cloves. Place each head on a separate piece of tin foil. Drizzle with olive oil and seal the foil around the garlic.
  3. Place both garlic packets on a baking sheet or baking dish. Roast in the oven for 30 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool.
  4. Reduce oven temp to 350.
  5. In a food processor, add the cream cheese, 1 1/2 cup reggianno, gouda, beer, red chili sauce, salt, pepper and corn starch. Squeeze the roasted heads of garlic until the soft cloves comes out, add the roasted cloves to the food processor, taking care that none of the papery garlic skin is added to the food processor. Discard the empty garlic head. Process until well combined.
  6. Add to a baking dish, top with the remaining 1/4 cup cheese.
  7. Bake at 350 until melted and the top has started to turn a light golden brown, about 35-40 minutes. Remove from oven, top with green onions, serve warm.

Notes

Use a saison or a wheat beer if you want a more subtle beer flavor, use an IPA for a bigger, bolder beer taste.

Reply

Jenn A January 16, 2013 um 7:25 am

Great idea, definitely trying this! Although, I will probably sub avocado for cream cheese. The fat in avocado is the good kind of fat that our bodies need- especially our brains! Fat free cream cheese may lower calories, but it adds a lot of Chemicals… No thank you! :). Fabulous idea.

Reply

Jackie January 16, 2013 um 9:06 am

I agree, plant fat is always so much healthier than dairy fat! You can also sub in silken tofu (but that also has a lot of chemicals) or goat cheese, or cashew cream. I wanted this to be avo-fee (even though I LOVE avocados) because there are actually quite a few people who are nearly deathly allergic to avocados (how sad!) and I wanted to give them something they could have as a replacement for guacamole. But you are free to experiment and make it your own!

Wow…I wanted to try this recipe so bad! I was looking for spinach dip because i had it thawing in the fridge for 2 days and really needed to use it.
So i used spinach instead of broccoli. Yum it worked great. I used twice the greek yougurt and 1/2 c cream cheese, and all I had was dried cilantro.
I was cooking up a chicken breast for lunch and thought…why not? So i spooned it over the chicken. I have to say it was delish, and saved a few calories not using chips or crackers.

THANK YOU for this awesome recipe… And since I have been aware of it, I’ve made it TWICE now in a weeks time!!
So, I must add a little feedback/thoughts:
The first time I made it (only 1/2 recipe) it was AmAzinG!!! I boiled the broccoli- with stalks, (wasn’t thinking about nutrient loss and just did it) and in a blender added broccoli and then all the other ingredients minus the jalapeño (didn’t have any:-/) It turned out PERFECT! I was so excited I took it to work!!! And everyone loved it. I topped it with tomatoes and green onions, and ate with chips but red peppers were even better!!
The second time, I steamed the broccoli with stalks and in a blender added all the ingredients and then the broccoli. I used low fat cream cheese both times. The second time the results were not so good… total bummer! It was like a soft purée vs the creamy dip the first time around!
What did I do wrong??? Would love any feedback! Thanks!!:)

Maybe it was a combination of using a blender and steaming the broc? Blenders are not the same as a food processor, so that could have contributed.

JUST made this for lunch to go along with leftover chicken fajitas stuffed in warmed corn tortillas. I have to admit, I was a bit skeptical at first, but we busted out the bag of corn chips to just give it a taste, it was AMAZING! My kids and I all loved it! We all agreed it is different than guacamole, but it is a great low fat sub that is fantastic at sneaking in more green veggies! I will definitely make this again. I think next time I will look for a dairy free cream cheese so it has a bit more tang to it. (I used tofu, which was great, but I think the tang of cream cheese would just add a little something) I wonder if a squeeze of lemon would add what I am looking for….anyway, THANK YOU! SUPER YUM!

I was asked to make it again for Christmas. And I will, with goatcheese =) I’m sure it will be just as good.

Thank you for this recipe.

I just made this, but used what I had in the cupboard…I used packaged guacamole mix and 1/4 cup of plain yogurt with the 3 cups of cooked broccoli and 1 tsp olive oil. I put it all in the blender and blended until smooth. It was delicious and addicting. Thank you for the idea!! If you use fat free plain yogurt, it is 0 weight watchers points 🙂

[…] 1. Chips and Broccamole Guac-amole is an instant win, but this brocc-amole is a delicious way to make for a healthier win. While there are actually no avocados in the recipe, the mix still turns out creamy and green like the old-fashioned stuff. The broccamole is a low-cal, low-fat, guilt-free dip with lots of vitamin C — over 100 percent of the daily recommended value in a cup [1]. […]

This recipe looks amazing! I never thought to use broccoli in a dip. I am definitely adding this to my Super Bowl menu.

I’m (devastatingly) HIGHLY allergic to avocado, and have never had guacamole. This has completely made my year. Thank you!!!

Just made this to take to a Derby party! I switched out some things based on what I had on hand – dried green onion, minced garlic, 1 tsp cumin (instead of jalapeño), dried parsley (instead of cilantro -ick!), and a spoonful of sour cream and a spoonful of cottage cheese. It’s delish! And tastes nothing like broccoli!

There are so many avocado chocolate pudding recipes around now…perhaps it’s time for a broccoli chocolate pudding? I’m thinking instead of the spices you listed add some melted 100% baking chocolate, vanilla, touch silken tofu, sweetener to the boiled broccoli (I would use a xylitol caramel and stevia)……

I tried this recipe with a few variations. It turned out tasting good, but maybe not fully what I was expecting. Or perhaps I just REALLY like avocado guacamole best! I blogged about my experience making it.

Just made this tonight, I added half of a can of full fat coconut milk and an avocado to make this paleo friendly. I didnt steam the brocolli since we try to eat as raw as possible but it was still really good. I always need inventive recipes to get my cruciferous and sulfur foods in and this was a great way to eat a ton of broccoli ( I added extra). Will probably be a staple in our kitchen now

I just made this and it is so delicious!!! I’m sure I will enjoy it cold too. It tastes more like avacado than broccoli to me, strangely enough, but I love both. Thank you for a delicious recipe. This will kick off a wonderful Father’s Day weekend for my hubby!!

So I used to live in Dallas in 1996 and our grocery store sold a dip called, Broccomole. It was delicious and I never saw it again after we moved back to the southeast. I came across your blog when googling recipes for it and am so happy to have found this! I’m allergic to avocados but love guacamole.

OMG! THIS RECIPE IS SO DELICIOUS! Thank you!!! It really does have that guacamole feel with no guilt for the fat! I had normandy blend frozen veggies in my fridge so I used that instead of just broccoli alone and used tahini sauce for the creamy. Yum yum yummmmmyyyy!

Wow! Great recipe. I used plain Greek yogurt as my something creamy and it turned out wonderful. Served with pita chips.
