Kale-kissed gaucamole wrapped in wontons and fried? Where do I sign?
Okay, this incredible appetizer is such an oxymoron. The happiest oxymoron ever. We've got guacamole with kale in it. But then you wrap it all in wontons and deep fry them. It's called balance.
It's just like me listening to NPR everyday and then watching Keeping Up With the Kardashians on the weekends. Balance.
Don't roll your eyes.
The magical Joy created these little suckers a while back, but I tweaked them juuuust a tad by adding kale to the mix, and using chives as the strings. They're just cute; I couldn't stand not to make them.
And now it's your turn. BALANCE.
Make your gauc! Ya got avocado, red onion, kale, cilantro, lime juice, some cherry tomatoes, and salt and pepper. Mix mix mix.
And then dip about 45 chips in it for taste testing purposes. Ahem.
This part takes a while, but if you've got some good jams going, you won't mind. You'll wipe a little egg wash inside each wonton wrapper, then in goes a little dollop of guac. Then you'll roll it up and pinch the sides. Photos help. It's hard to explain, man!
*Sorry I said jams.
Then take the chives and tie the ends, just like little packages.
This is after they're fried! Obviously. I always get scared to photograph the frying because hot oil is the devil. And he stings.
But look how fun they are! Don't even think you'll have just one.
But it's okay because, balance.
Eat the whole tray.
