Spring Pea Guacamole
Recipe Yields 2 cups
Prep time/ 10 minutes total
* 2 cups fresh or frozen peas (or you can add 1 cup peas with either 1 cup well cooked broccoli, edamame, asparagus tips or 1 whole avocado peeled and pitted)
* 2 tbsp lime or lemon juice (about 2 limes fresh or 1 large lemon fresh)
* 1 medium tomato seeded and diced
* ½ red onion diced
* 1 jalapeño or Serrano chili seeded and minced (If you like lots of heat mince with seeds in)
* ¼ cup chopped cilantro
* 2 cloves garlic minced
* ½ tsp sea salt
* ¼ tsp black pepper
** In a blender or food processor, blend peas until smooth (or other veggies of your choice) If not using blender or processor mash with a fork or potato masher.
** Add lemon or lime juice, tomato, onion, garlic, salt and pepper, jalapeno/Serrano pepper and cilantro. Mix well.
** If Guacamole won't be served immediately, press plastic wrap directly onto the dip to prevent browning.
** Serve with chips, or raw veggies or top tacos. (Great as a fish topper)
