Edamame Guacamole


  • 1 cup frozen shelled edamame, thawed
  • 1 small ripe avocado, peeled and pitted
  • 1 canned chipotle pepper in adobo sauce, finely chopped (optional)
  • 1/3 bunch of cilantro
  • 1/ 4 white onion, roughly chopped
  • Juice of 2 limes
  • Fine sea salt and freshly ground black pepper


Put edamame, avocado, chipotle, cilantro, onion and lime juice in a food processor and pulse until almost smooth. Add enough water (about 2 tablespoons) to make a creamy consistency and pulse again. Transfer guacamole to a bowl. Season with salt and pepper.

Serve with raw vegetables like celery, carrots and radishes for dipping or alongside baked pita chips as a healthy snack or appetizer.
