This recipe is for Kate who officially started her post-partum diet last week. It substitutes blended peas for half the avocado in guacamole. This is genius because blended peas have …
- a sweet flavor
- the same color as guac
- a texture that doesn’t really take away from the creamy-ness of guac
- less calories than avocado
Grandma Harriet made this for us last week. We loved it.
This recipe is a little strange. Worcestershire sauce? Nothing is less Mexican than Worcestershire sauce. If you have an authentic guacamole recipe that you already love, just try the pea substitution and let me know how it goes.
