Guacamole with Pomegranate and Sprouted Pumpkin Seeds

Guacamole with Pomegranate and Sprouted Pumpkin Seeds

Oh, happy day! Pomegranates are in season. When I made this for the first time during the holidays, I called it Christmas Guacamole because of the colors. I like it enough that it’s not just for Christmas anymore. Peeled pomegranate arils (fancy name for the seeds) are available in the produce sections at grocery stores during pomegranate season, which typically runs from September through February.  

If you’d like to cut down on carbs from tortilla chips, jicama slices make a tasty substitution.

If you have any leftovers, spread some guacamole on a slice of toast for breakfast. I love avocado toast!
