Green Pea Guacamole

Add nutrient variety and subtract cost by substituting peas for some of the avocado. A recipe from Whole Foods.

Green pea guacamole tastes great, and just like traditional guacamole, you can keep it on the healthy side by serving this smooth and tangy dip with fresh, crunchy crudités such as radishes, carrot sticks and sugar snap peas.
