If you’ve been following me on Instagram, you probably saw my new addiction with green peas, and that I started sprouting some organic, dry peas I recently bought. I wasn’t quite sure what to make with them and using what I had on hand at home, this recipe came to life!

It’s such an amazing alternative to normal guacamole, mostly because the taste is pretty similar, as we use the same ingredients as traditional guacamole, but it contains half the fat and double the protein! Don’t you just love it already?

Green peas have become my new addiction. Why? I have absolutely no idea. But I just go with the flow and enjoy them with my salads, as a crunchy snack with lime and organic chili powder and last but not least, my peacamole wraps!

Gastrawnomica’s Peacamole (low fat guacamole)

Makes 2 cups

1 cup fresh or steamed green peas

1 small avocado or 1/2 large

1 lime juice

1/4 cup fresh cilantro leaves, chopped

3 chives or 1/4 cup red onion, chopped

1/4-1/2 jalapeño pepper, chopped (optional, but it’s part of traditional recipe)

**Sea salt if desired

Consistency is different if you decide to use raw, fresh peas or lightly steamed. I personally liked it more with steamed peas, because it was creamier and taste was a tiny bit different, but still both will turn out perfectly fine.

Put peas, avocado, cilantro and lime juice in food processor. Mix until everything is well incorporated, you might need to stop to scrape down the sides. Transfer mixture to a bowl and add chives/onion, jalapeño and salt to taste (if using). At this point you can add chopped tomatoes too.

BTW, you can also serve it as a dip with crudité. Perfect party/movie night snack! Who says you can’t eat healthy and be social right? Let me know what you think. And please don’t forget to give credit to the blog if you make it!
