Green Pea Guacamole Recipe

Guacamole has long been one of my favorite dishes. It's rich in heart-healthy monounsaturated fatty acids, phytonutrients that are good for keeping our eyes healthy, and a number of other health-enhancing nutrients. Best of all, guacamole is simple to put together and goes well with just about anything.

The following version of guacamole calls for mushed or blended green peas, which makes it richer in healthy protein than more conventional guacamole recipes.


2 ripe avocados
1 cup defrosted green peas, drained
1 small tomato, chopped
2 tablespoons minced red onion
Juice of 1 lime
1/2 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
Sea salt, to taste


1. Pulse peas in a food processor or strong blender until smooth.

2. Cut open avocados, take out seeds, and scoop out avocado flesh into a medium size bowl.

3. Add blended peas, tomato, red onion, lime juice, cilantro, and sea salt.

4. Mix all ingredients gently with a fork - use enough pressure to bring ingredients together, but not so much that avocado loses all of its chunkiness.

Enjoy this delicious, protein-rich guacamole with your favorite raw vegetables, steamed vegetables, whole grain dish, or baked chips.
