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.
- 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
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.
