The Green Pea Guacamole
Try it and you’ll love it! Guacamole itself is a delicious and very healthy treat, but it is still full of good fats – which we need, but in moderation. Replacing half the avocado with green peas makes the recipe lighter both in terms of flavour and nutrition. Another benefit is that it’s less costly than a full avocado guacamole (where I live, avocados are quite expensive).
This recipe will take you about 10 minutes. You can keep it super healthy by serving it with fresh, crunchy crudités such as radishes or carrot sticks.
Avocado, 1 ripe
Green peas (frozen), 400 gr
Green onion, 4
Garlic, 1 clove
Coriander, a handful
Cumin powder, 1 teaspoon
Hot sauce, just a little
Set aside some of the coriander for garnish. Allow the peas to defrost for about 30 minutes otherwise you won’t be able to blend them.
In a food processor, add peas, avocado, green onions, garlic, cumin and lime juice. Mix until smooth.
Garnish with coriander leaves, and serve with crudités, crackers or vegetable crips.
