Working Mom's Recipe of the Week


Servings: 25

Prep and cook: 15 min


1 c frozen peas, thawed

1-2 T olive oil

1 tomato, diced

2 T onion, minced

¼ c fresh cilantro, minced

3 small ripe avocados

1-2 T lemon juice

Salt and pepper

Directions: Place peas and olive oil in blender and puree until smooth. Scoop into a bowl. Add remaining ingredients. Mix well using a fork to mash up the avocado. Taste and adjust lemon juice, salt and pepper. Scoop into the serving bowl. Place a pieces of plastic wrap over the top, pressing it down against the guacamole and removing all air pockets. Place in fridge until time to serve. Best to make at least 1 hour in advance to allow the flavors to blend.

Notes: The magic ingredient in this recipe is the peas. The peas and lemon juice help keep the green color for a long time. The peas also add a touch of sweet flavor, but no one will guess that there are peas in the guacamole. I made this last night for a party and it was a huge hit. I caught someone using a spoon to get the very last tidbit out.
