If you've ever watched her culinary show, you know that the 43-year-old mom of two loves cooking — so much that she even makes her 9-month-old son's baby food from scratch. She even has her own twist on the ever-classic guacamole; in fact, she's even made it detox-friendly for those in search of a clean yet substantial snack.
In Thiessen's guacamole recipe, you'll find staples like avocado, garlic, salt, pepper and cilantro, sure — but she also adds a special ingredient that she says brightens up the dish: grapefruit!
The 90210 star uses the grapefruit in two parts: one-quarter of the fruit chopped, one-quarter juiced. The juice keeps the guac from browning, and the chopped fruit adds texture. Together, they add a tangy flavor you normally wouldn't get with guacamole.
At the very end, Thiessen adds roasted sunflower seeds for a crunchy texture that comes in handy especially when you're using crudité like sliced bell peppers or carrots instead of tortilla chips.
We'll admit we were a bit skeptical of the grapefruit addition at first, but let's be real — who's ever going to pass up the chance to eat some guac?
