Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 3 minutes
Total Time 8 minutes
Servings 2 .5 cups
- 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
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!
