    Sweet Plantain Guacamole—The Paleo Kitchen | stupideasypaleo.com

    Guacamole is pretty much like heaven to me. Packed with healthy fats, this combination of luscious, creamy avocado mixed with any variety of spices, herbs and aromatics is pretty great on just about anything. This recipe, one from the soon to be released book The Paleo Kitchen by George Bryant and Juli Bauer, adds a twist to the standard guac: plantains. That’s right. Plantains. These ripe beauties—a great source of healthy carbohydrate—are softened and then folded right in!
