My friend Kathy gave me a great cook book for my birthday last year that’s called the “Eat-Clean Diet Cookbook” by Tosca Reno. For those of you who don’t know who Tosca Reno is, she was a yo-yo dieter for years and after changing her eating habits, lost 80 pounds and has kept it off for 8 years. She now has a magazine called Clean Eating Magazine. It also has great tips and recipes.
One of the recipes I made yesterday from her cookbook was guacamole. Until last year I had never made my own guacamole, or eaten avocados on a regular basis, now I love them!
Here’s what you will need:
2 small ripe avocados
5 oz. frozen peas, lightly cooked, rinsed and drained
1.2 cup cilantro, trimmed and chopped
1 ripe plum tomato, chopped
1/2 cup chopped green onion, whites only
juice of one Lime
Combine all ingredients in a food processor and pulse until just combined. Transfer to a serving bowl and cover with plastic wrap. Refrigerate. That’s it! I loved the addition of peas, it tasted awesome!
