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.


  • 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.
