Low Fat Guacamole Recipe (Edamole) Posted by:Lindsay S. Nixon Category: Recipe

I know I preach a low fat lifestyle (hell, I author a fat-free blog!) and thatis how I live and eat... but I'm not going to lie. I love avocados and I love guacamole. I figured, if beans can make brownies, there has to be a way to make lower fat guacamole, right? While this guacamole isn't fat-free (soybeans have fat in them) its still low fat and also high in protein. You could try substituting peas for the soybeans for a truly fat-free version.

Now, this 'edamole' doesn't taste the same as guacamole and the texture is a little different, but it's a great substitution and can easily pass for the real thing when slipped into burritos and layered bean dips. I fed it to Scott as guacamole and he didn't miss a beat. When I told him it was edamole, he quickly asked "is this my dinner?" and then ate all of it with baked corn tortillas!

Ingredients

Instructions

Combine all ingredients except tomatoes in a food processor and blend until smooth, scraping sides as necessary. If it's too rustic, add 1-2 tbsp water. Stir in tomatoes and serve.

For a truly fat-free knock off, try using 2 cups of frozen peas (thawed). Also, a little avocado can go a long way. If desired, add 2-4 tbsp avocado for a more authentic taste but still with a lot less fat!
