No avocados? No problem. This FOK fan-favorite recipe is a tasty blend of frozen green peas and classic guacamole add-ins like fresh garlic, lime, cilantro, cumin, and hot sauce. The result is an ultra light and creamy dip that doubles as a delicious sandwich spread.

This pea guacamole tastes so much like the real thing that most people won’t be able to guess what it is made from.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups frozen green peas, thawed
  • 1 teaspoon crushed garlic
  • ¼ cup fresh lime juice
  • ½ teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 tomato, chopped
  • 4 green onions, chopped
  • ½ cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • ⅛ teaspoon hot sauce
  • Sea salt

Instructions

  1. Blend the peas, garlic, lime juice, and cumin in a food processor until smooth.
  2. Transfer the mixture into a bowl and stir in the tomato, green onion, cilantro, and hot sauce. Add salt to taste.
  3. Cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes, to allow the flavors to blend.

Delicious, a great alternative to using avocados and giving yourself greenie points. I found it a little too wet, my fault as I added too many peas, so suggest under pea-ing if you make this. Add plenty of salt. I may about add some soaked cashews to the blending stage for richness in future, but even as is it’s a fresh and delicious dip, burrito and sandwich topper.

Really easy to make and surprisingly tasty! It’s also easy to adjust more or less ingredients to your liking. We will make this again!!!!

Just made this and wowza, it’s delicious! My 20 y/o just asked to “take this off my hands” with some baked tortilla chips — he has no idea it’s made from green peas, lol. This is a keeper for sure!

Used a little extra lime juice ( juice of two limes came to about 1/3 cup), and parsley instead of cilantro, since I didn’t have any cilantro. Also used Uncle Dougie’s black sriracha sauce, about 2 tsp. Not exactly the recipe, but that is the joy of cooking: you make it how you like and use the ingredients you have if you want to make something, but don’t have exactly what is called for. It tasted delicious! It is so nice to have a good guacamole dip without all the fat. I highly recommend it!
