Here's some game day strategy for you! Add nutrient variety and subtract cost by substituting peas for some of the avocado. It tastes great, and just like traditional guacamole, you can keep it on the healthy side by serving this smooth and tangy dip with fresh, crunchy crudités such as radishes, carrot sticks and sugar snap peas.
- 1/3 cup roughly chopped fresh cilantro
- 1 (16-ounce) bag frozen green peas thawed
- 1 avocado roughly chopped
- 4 green onions sliced
- 3 cloves garlic
- 1/4 cup lime juice
Set aside 1 tablespoon cilantro, and then transfer remaining to a food processor. Add peas, avocado, green onions, garlic and lime juice, and purée until smooth. Transfer to a serving bowl, garnish with reserved cilantro and serve.
