Green Pea Guacamole

I was a little skeptical about this new recipe because I’m just not that crazy about green peas.  However, it turned out really good!  

Here it is…

2 cups frozen green peas
1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
½ teaspoon powdered garlic
¼ cup minced sweet onion
½ cup minced tomato
Cilantro to taste

Put peas under warm water until softened but still cold.  Drain well.

Place peas, lemon juice, garlic, and cilantro in a food processor and process until very smooth.  Transfer to a medium bowl.

Stir in onion and tomato.  Let stand for 10 minutes.

*The recipe says to serve within an hour or two to retain the color but mine looked just as good after being in the frig overnight and actually tasted better!

Serve with crackers, vegetables or chips.  It can also be used as a sandwich spread.
