Green Garbanzo Guacamole

Makes about 2 cups

Slightly sweeter than the canned variety you might be used to, green garbanzo beans have a fresh flavor similar to peas. Serve this extra-green guac with raw veggies and baked tortilla chips or baked whole grain pita chips.

  • 1 (10-ounce) bag frozen green garbanzo beans
  • 1 clove garlic, halved
  • 1 avocado
  • 2 tablespoons chopped cilantro
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 1 fresh plum tomato, seeded and chopped
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh jalapeño pepper, optional

Cook beans according to package instructions. Drain and run under cold water to cool. Place cooled beans and garlic in the bowl of a food processor and pulse until coarsely chopped but not puréed. Transfer to a medium bowl and add avocado, cilantro, lime juice and salt. Mash until evenly blended. Stir in tomato and jalapeño, if using. Keep chilled until ready to serve.
