Green Pea Guacamole Ingredients

3 large or 4 small avocados
1 small or 1/2 large onion (red, white or yellow)

Green pea for guacamole recipe

Instructions

Finely mince onions and garlic. Place in a medium sized mixing bowl. Quarter and peel the avocados. Remove the pits and set them aside. Put avocado into the mixing bowl and mash with the onions, garlic, salt, and lemon juice. Fold in the peas when the avocado is smooth. Then, scoop the guacamole into a serving dish or food storage container.

If serving time is within an hour, keep at room temperature for flavor merging, but, otherwise, put into the storage container and bed at least one of the pits down into the middle of the dip. Inserting the pit may seem strange, but avocados start to brown soon after leaving the seed heart. Even the acid in the lemon juice does little to prevent this discoloration and the spoilage that soon follows.

Green Pea Guacamole Recipe Extra Tips

– Place all ingredients except for the peas in a food processor and whiz together, or mashed them with a hand potato masher, an electric eggbeater, or an electric mixer. Fold in the peas when the guacamole is smooth.

– Try whizzing the ingredients including the peas for an ultra-smooth dip.

– If more texture is desired, leave some lumps in the avocado and do not add the minced onions and garlic until the avocado, salt and lemon juice are mashed together. Then, fold in the peas.

– For a more Southwestern flavor, add one-teaspoon fresh cilantro, finely chopped, and one-half teaspoon ground cayenne.

– Add more color and flavor with one-half cup tomato diced, canned or fresh and strained.

– Add one-tablespoon olive or other vegetable oil if the consistency is too stiff and dry.
