Guacamole... Reimagined.

Guacamole Reinvented by Vegetarian Times

It's citrus season, and this vegan, gluten-free, dairy-free, low-calorie, low-fat Guacamole recipe incorporates oranges for a fresh take on a New Mexican classic.

Ingredients:

3 small avocados

3 small oranges

2 cups radishes, diced

1 ½ cups finely chopped romaine lettuce

6 green onions, finely chopped (1 cup)

3 Tbs. lime juice

¼ cup chopped cilantro

1-2 drops hot sauce, optional

Instructions:

1. Halve and pit avocados. Score each avocado half 7 times lengthwise and 7 times crosswise to dice. Scoop out with soup spoon, and place avocado dice in large bowl. Reserve avocado shells.

2. Cut peel and pith from oranges with knife, then slice each orange into 4 slices. Cut each orange slice into 6 small triangular pieces. Add to bowl with diced avocado. Add radishes, romaine, green onions, lime juice, cilantro, and hot sauce (if using) to bowl. Season with salt and pepper, if desired, and gently toss to coat.

3. Scoop avocado mixture into the remaining avocado shells. Serve them on saucers, surrounded by tortilla chips. The guacamole makes a tasty preamble to Vegetarian Posole Stew.
