Broccomole Dip

We eat lots of green things around here... asparagus, spinach, broccoli, green beans... you name em, we love um. One "green" recipe we enjoy on crackers is Broccomole, a yummy, creamy less-fat version of guacamole... (because there are no avocados).

Broccomole Dip  - Adapted from Taste of Home

2 cups chopped fresh broccoli, cooked and chilled
1/4 cup reduced-fat sour cream
1 to 2 tablespoons minced onion
1 tablespoon fat-free mayonnaise
2 to 3 tablespoons lemon juice
1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
Raw vegetables or tortilla chips or crackers


In a food processor, combine the first six ingredients; cover and process until smooth.

Refrigerate for several hours. Serve with vegetables, tortilla chips, homemade pita chips or crackers. 

Yield: 6 servings.

This recipe is shared for a special St. Patrick's Day "Green" recipe swap at Ultimate Recipe Swap and for Diptacular, in honor of the start of football season. It's also linked to Monday Munchies and Whole Foods for the Holidays: Appetizers.  


  1. Sounds like a high-fiber alternative! How did it taste?

  2. tasted pretty good -- better on crackers than on chips! I think it would go good on pitas too :)

  3. Can't wait to try this! Though I try to make healther dishes, they usually don't turn out that way bu this looks fantastic. Can't wait to try it!

  4. This sounds like a nice "healthy" dip version to have on hand. I'll have to give it a try (my son looooves brocooli, so I bet he'll enjoy).

  5. Oh my word this sounds so yummy!!! I will definitly be making this!! Thanks for sharing!

  6. WOW! What a health alternative. I can't wait to try it out. I am so glad BooMama hosted this DipTacular. So many great ideas.

  7. This sounds yummy. I love real guacamole but can't get my family to eat it. Maybe they'll eat this!
