Does Broccoli Go with Avocado?

These are avocado slices and broccoli pieces on a wood table.

I am a super huge fan of avocado, with literally any food. It doesn’t matter if it’s on a pizza, in a salad, or made into a dessert – I will eat it. But there are some foods I haven’t tried it with, and wanting to expand my diet options, I recently came across the question – does broccoli go with avocado?

Broccoli does go with avocado in more foods than you would expect. Avocado guacamole makes an excellent dip for broccoli, and they go well together in salads. They make a creamy smoothie and a healthy puree for babies.

They both work well combined as a side to compliment other foods.

You will not always find broccoli and avocado incorporated in recipes, but you can add the missing one to almost any meal containing the other.

Let’s look at some delicious recipes to incorporate broccoli and avocado together:

Broccoli and Avocado Salad

Broccoli makes a fantastic salad, primarily because of its crunchiness, and avocado adds healthy fats and creaminess to that characteristic of broccoli. The contrasting textures work well together, and if you are not a fan of broccoli, the avocado will help you better digest broccoli taste.

Broccoli with Avocado Guacamole Dip

You can’t go wrong with guacamole. It is the ideal way to eat broccoli and avocado together if you don’t know how to combine the two any other way. Avocado guacamole makes the perfect dip for your broccoli in any way you choose to eat it.

Guacamole also tastes fantastic in a broccoli salad.

Broccoli Guacamole (Broccomole)

If you don’t want to see or bite into broccoli, you can make broccoli guacamole. The broccoli will be masked into the taste of the guacamole, and you will still get the best of both greens. The “broccomoli” will complement any dish that you typically eat with guacamole.

Broccoli with Avocado Pesto

Broccoli goes well with pesto. But if you want to add more avocado into your diet, a fun way to get variety in your cuisine is by making an avocado pesto instead of regular pesto. You can use this in any broccoli dish where you would add pesto.

Broccoli and Avocado Pasta

Broccoli goes well with pasta, especially creamy pasta. Avocado goes well with broccoli because of its creaminess. Adding avocado to your broccoli pasta adds extra creaminess and is a healthy way to get that creamy texture if you replace other ingredients like heavy cream.

Grilled Broccoli with Avocado

Grilled broccoli with avocado is delicious because of the texture contrast in both greens.  It adds an incredible flavor, and if you make the avo into a dip, it will take your grilled broccoli to another level.

Broccoli and Avocado Soup

Broccoli soup is always delicious, comforting, and typically a healthy option. You can cut up some avocado and add it over your broccoli soup for creaminess. You can also eat avocado toast on the side with your broccoli soup.

Avocado also adds healthy fats to a soup meal which generally lacks in most soups.

A broccoli and avocado smoothie cannot go unmentioned. If you want a healthy, wholesome, filling smoothie, blend up some raw broccoli with avocado, add a banana for sweetness, and you have got yourself a healthy drink that won’t taste like broccoli at all. A smoothie is a perfect option for picky kids or meal replacement diets.
