Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons pine nuts
  • 1/2 cup pomegranate arils (75 grams)
  • 3 large avocados (about 475 grams of flesh)
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1/4 cup cilantro, chopped
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • optional toppings: chopped cilantro, red pepper flakes, black pepper

Instructions

  • Toast the pine nuts. Place pine nuts on a small skillet over low heat and toast until slightly browned, about 2-3 minutes. Make sure you are stirring constantly so they don't burn.
  • Remove pit from the avocados and place flesh in a medium-sized bowl. Add lime juice, cilantro, and salt and pepper and mix well until you desired consistency. I like mine somewhat smooth, but with a decent amount of chunks.
  • Place toasted pine nuts and pomegranate arils in the bowl with the avocado and mix well. I like to save some for topping once mixed. Top with optional toppings if desired and enjoy!
