My friend, Suzie, brought this to a party & it was so delicious – I had to try to recreate it.  It is earthier than most guacamole & has a lovely, herbed flavor that would go great on crostini or bruschetta – as will as with chips or on anything else you might put guacamole.  It would also make a terrific pasta sauce.

Rosemary Guacamole


4 large avocados – pitted & peeled (Reserve a pit or two to put in the completed guacamole.  Pits prevent guacamole from turning brown.)

5-10 stems FRESH rosemary (not dried) – leaves removed from the tough stems

1 large garlic clove

1 seeded jalapeno or other hot pepper

1 lime



You need to create a paste from the garlic, jalapeno & rosemary.  Start with 5 stems of rosemary & increase it to taste. A mortar & pestle (like above) would be the most effective.  A really course mortar & pestle.  I used a Magic Bullet & mortar & pestle combo (see the video).  Do whatever you can to get the rosemary a fine as possible & the garlic & jalapeno minced.

Mash the avocado, mix in the rosemary paste & add lime & salt to taste.  Season to taste – even adding more rosemary paste if you think it needs it.  Drop in a reserved avocado pit.
