Broccomole MixWhat is a Seahawks Broccomole Super Bowl?

  Guacamole + Broccoli = Broccomole

  This creamy dip tastes like broccoli and guacamole had a love-child.  What I love most about the “broccomole” dip is that it has the same zesty flavors of lime, cilantro, and creamy avocado. Another great feature of Broccomole is the main ingredient is broccoli stems– the part that I usually end up throwing away.  It’s delicious and easy on your wallet.

How to assemble your Seahawks Broccomole Super Bowl
Broccomole ingredients

You will need:

A small and a medium casserole dish

2 pipe cleaners

Assorted veggies for dipping, cut into long straws – the brighter and more varied the better

Ricotta cheese or Greek Yogurt

A piping bag with a fine tip OR a sandwich-size ziplock bag and a pair of scissors

 Make your Broccomole Super Bowl

To put your Seahawks Broccomole Super Bowl together: Create two end-posts with pipe cleaners. I chose Seahawks colors: blue and green.  Pour dip into small casserole dish and smooth the top with a spatula.  Scoop 3-4 heaping tablespoons full of ricotta or Greek yogurt into the piping bag and twist at about the middle to keep the extras from oozing out the top.  Decorate your “field” with end zones and yard lines.  That’s the hardest part.  Decorate the field with cherry tomatoes and radishes and fill the stands in alternating colors with veggie “fans”.  It’s almost too pretty to eat.. almost.

I loved this broccomole dip. Admittedly, I didn’t stick to just vegetables, but hey, it was a party!
