Edamame Guacamole

Posted on 04. Jul, 2010 in Food

Makes about 2 cups

Made with avocado and edamame, this guacamole variation is both creamy and fresh. Serve with raw vegetables like celery, carrots and radishes for dipping or alongside baked pita chips as a healthy snack or appetizer.

Ingredients

1 cup frozen shelled edamame, thawed

1 small, ripe avocado, peeled and pitted

1 canned chipotle pepper in adobo sauce, finely chopped (optional)or 1 jalapeno with 1 sorrento chili finely chopped.

1/3 bunch cilantro

1/4 white onion, roughly chopped

Juice of 2 limes

1-2 teaspoons of crushed garlic

2 to 3 tablespoons water

Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper

Method

Put edamame, avocado, chipotle, cilantro, onion, and lime juice in a food processor and pulse until almost smooth. Add enough water or pico de gallo salsa (found in the produce section) to make a creamy consistency and pulse again. Transfer guacamole to a bowl, season with salt and pepper and serve.
