This recipe makes about 3 cups of guacamole.
- 3 small ripe avocados
- 1 cup shelled frozen edamame
- Juice of one lime
- 2 or 3 dashes Tabasco sauce (this small amount won't make it spicy but will add great flavor)
- 1/4 cup chopped red onion
- 1 large garlic clove, minced
- 1 teaspoon sea salt
- 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
- 6 to 8 cherry tomatoes (optional)
- Food processor
How to Make Healthier Guacamole
1. Boil the frozen edamame in half a cup of water for 3 to 4 minutes. Drain and rinse with cold water to cool the beans. Add to the bowl of food processor.
2. Cut avocadoes in half, remove the pits and use a spoon to scoop out the flesh. Then, add it to the food processor bowl.
3. Add the rest of the ingredients to the bowl. Using the pulse button of your food processor, blend the mixture until it reaches your desired consistency (I like to leave it a bit chunky but you may prefer it on the smoother side).
4. Taste the guacamole to see if it needs a dash more salt or pepper, adding as needed.
5. Serve with tortilla chips.
