    Sunflower Guacamole

    Sure, it breaks from tradition, but sunflower greens infuse guacamole with fresh, nutty flavour. Beyond using as a dip for tortilla chips or sliced vegetables, try using this guac as a spread for toasted bread and top with roasted chicken, fried eggs, black beans, or smoked salmon.

    Tip: When the first true sunflower leaves appear, make sure to harvest the shoots within a couple of days. If left too long they will become fuzzy and bitter tasting.

    If keeping leftovers, place a thin layer of water over the surface of guacamole during storage as a barrier to oxygen to keep browning at bay. Pour water off before serving and then give it a stir.
