Lower Potassium Guacamole

Guacamole is an avocado-based dip that Americans just love. However, dialysis patients are typically cautioned against the high levels of potassium in this popular appetizer. Here, we have a version that is both delicious and safe for the renal diet. It uses demineralized avocado and cauliflower to obtain a safe level of phosphorus, potassium, and sodium per serving. You may want to demineralize the avocado an hour or two before beginning the recipe to save yourself some time.
