Brocamole

This is my version of Nigella's 'brocamole' idea- she in turn credits the idea to Ludo Lefebvre, who did a purely broccoli version with no avocado. I adore fresh guacamole, and although avocados are very good for you and full of 'healthy' fat, if you are following Slimming World it is very high in syns and for me it's great to be able to enjoy ...
