Guacamole Supreme!

February 6th, 2014 / cat / 0 comments

If you crave guacamole, like I do, here is an inexpensive way to have as much as you want…and get your brain food too!

LOVE avocados…and LOVE peas!

Mix and match as you like. Often I add mint, parsley, lemon balm or whatever herb I have in the garden that day!

• 1 cup frozen peas, slightly thawed
• 1 medium Hass avocado, peeled and pitted
• 2 tbsp. fresh lime or lemon juice, or to taste
• 1 medium tomato, seeded and cut into ¼inch dice
• ½ red or sweet onion, cut into ⅛inch dice
• 1 jalapeño or serrano chile, seeded and minced (to taste; I use 4 peppers!)
• 3 tbsp. chopped fresh cilantro, or any herb you have growing (or leave out if you prefer)
• 1 smashed fresh garlic pod — whack it and voila!
• ½ tsp. sea salt

1. In a blender, or in the bowl of a food processor, process the peas until smooth.
2. In a medium bowl, mash the avocado with a fork or potato masher. Add the juice, tomato, onion, jalapeño, cilantro, garlic, and salt to taste. Add the peas and mix well.
3. If the guacamole won’t be served immediately, press a piece of plastic wrap directly onto the surface to prevent browning.
