Lighter guacamole and this weeks menu | infinebalance

This sounds like a yummy recipe to try. It's so hard not to eat large quantities of guac when it's placed in front of you...

The peas needed something other than salt and lime. I added green onion, garlic and cilantro. The result is a creamy dip, cool and refreshing. Slightly sweet but well-balanced with the garlic, onion and cilantro. Is it the same as the real thing? No. But it’s a tasty spread in its own right, a lighter guacamole. Less fat than the traditional. Awesome in tacos and with tortilla chips. Next time I would consider adding some jalapeno’s to add some heat.
