There are so many reasons we love living in SoCal, but avocados have to be one of the top contenders! Delicious and nutritious, these creamy fruits are full of flavor and low in calories. A superfood, avocados are packed with good fats, and nearly 20 vitamins, minerals & phytonutrients – making it a heart-healthy choice!
2 avocado oil
3 scallions minced
1 ripe, Fresh California Avocado peeled
1 white beans, canned, drained and rinsed
4 cilantro packed
1/4 sea salt
Zest the limes and set the zest aside.
Slice the ends off the lime; cut off and discard the peel and pith. Carefully cut each lime into segments, reserving any leftover lime juice..
Heat the avocado oil and honey in a small skillet, then add 2 tablespoons of scallions, lime segments, and any extra lime juice.
Cook on medium-low heat until the limes are broken down and look caramelized, 3 to 4 minutes. Remove from the heat, stir in 1/2 teaspoon of the lime zest, and set aside.
Combine avocado, white beans, 3 tablespoons of cilantro and sea salt in a blender or food processor along with the cooked lime mixture.
Add a splash of water as needed to thin the dip enough to puree it smooth. Taste and add more salt as needed.
Transfer to a bowl and top with1 tablespoon of cilantro and scallion greens each.
