Pea Guacamole

Prep: 10 minutes Chill: 30 minutes

Serves:Makes 2 cups

Many of you enjoy eating guacamole but, realizing it is a high-fat plant food, are always asking me for a healthier alternative. This recipe first appeared in the Maximum Weight Loss book many years ago. I have modified it slightly for an even fresher taste. This tastes so much like the real thing that most people won't be able to guess what it is made from.

Ingredients

  • 2 pounds frozen green peas, thawed
  • 1 tsp garlic, peeled
  • 1/4 cup lime juice
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 1 tomato, chopped
  • 4 green onions, chopped
  • 1/2 cup cilantro, finely chopped
  • 1/8 tsp hot pepper sauce
  • dash salt

Directions

Place the peas, garlic, lime juice and cumin in a food processor and process until smooth. Then place in a bowl and stir in the remaining ingredients. Cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes to allow flavors to blend.
