Broccomole Dip

I can’t get enough of avocados at the moment, nor tahini (sesame seed paste to those not in the know), and whilst  I was blending them together today to add to my mega salad, I had a brain wave to add some other bits and bobs!  I thought I’d been really clever with the name here, but it turns out (following a google search) that I didn’t quite get here first…  Anyway, whatever… This is MY version.  Definitely makes salad more interesting.


  • 1 medium sized ripe avocado
  • 2 cups of steamed broccoli, cooled
  • large handful of basil leaves (about 10)
  • 1/2 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 heaped tablespoon tahini
  • squeeze lemon juice
  • pinch Himalayan salt


  • blend the avocado in a small blender/with a hand blender, then add in the remaining ingredients.
  • Pulse until desired consistency
  • Check seasoning
I served mine on top of a mega salad – Spinach leaves, a serving of last night’s beetroot salad, a couple of hard boiled eggs and topped with some pine nuts for a bit of crunch, a teeny drizzle of flax oil dressing and some black pepper.
