"For this wonderful dip, fresh broccoli is combined with sour cream, lemon juice and a pinch of chili powder. Great to serve with chips and raw vegetables."

chopped fresh broccoli, cooked and chilled
reduced fat sour cream
I read the reviews, but I still wanted to make it because I am looking for healthy recipes. So I (1) added 1 clove minced garlic(if you like garlic add more (2) I used the white part of the green onion for the onion called for in the recipe and then used the green part to sprinkle over the top. It helped.
Terribly bland-I added three times the amount of chili powder with the hopes of perking up the flavor with no luck.
Perhaps, to cure the blandness, you could use lime juice instead of lemon, and add a little fresh (seeded) japeno, and a little fresh cilantro. Throw in a clove of garlic. How about a tad of white vinegar? Those are all key to real guacamole, so surely they will perk up the broccoli version!
I found that adding in about 2 Tbsp. FF or 1/3 less fat cream cheese thickened this recipe up and made it superb!!
I found this recipe to be a bit bland. I tried to add some seasonings and a little salt, but it didn't help. It certainly is healthy, though---and pretty easy (although a bit messy) to make.
I used raw broccoli instead and it was WONDERFUL. Great snack for those of us that like something healthy and lower in fat!
This recipe turned out tasty, but not as much reminiscent of guacamole as I was expecting. However, I modified it, which may account for the difference in taste, which was unique, but pleasant. I used nonfat, plain yogurt in place of the sour cream and mayonnaise, and I added lime juice, extra chili powder and onion, some garlic salt, and cumin. It is slightly spicy, and it's refreshing, as a dip with wheat crackers.
Loved this.. only had fat free sour cream so I used that. Don't know if I would mistake it for guac but it was very very good!
