This recipe for green pea guacamole was inspired by a recipe I found in a cookbook for recipes aimed at reducing acid reflux. If you suffer from heartburn or GERD, you know what it is like to suffer after eating something you love. I usually manage with taking about half a capful of apple cider vinegar as this helps neutralize stomach acid.
If you would like the recipe for the guacamole that will help with your acid reflux, check out The Acid Reflux Solution, because I added tomatoes and onions to this recipe and that most certainly won’t help anybody’s heartburn. But enough about acid reflux, let’s get back to the guacamole.
Feel free to add cilantro to this recipe, but you won’t be finding it in anything I make. I love guacamole, but I don’t love cilantro.
I have a cousin who is a pro at making guacamole. Every summer, we take a trip to the beach with about a dozen family members. Each day we’re there, a different family is in charge of making dinner. I look forward to taco night all year. There is nothing better than fresh, homemade guacamole scooped on top of a warm chicken taco or perhaps even a steak fajita salad. The addition of the peas makes my recipe a little different from my cousin’s, but mine is a lighter version which I am sure will be loved, too.
Steaming peas is a quick and easy task. It only takes about 5 minutes until they are done. You can also place the peas in a food processor to blend them with the avocado after you steam them, but this is completely optional.
- ½-3/4 cup green peas
- 1-2 avocados
- ½ small tomato, diced
- ¼-1/2 onion, diced*
- 1 Tbsp lime juice
- ½ tsp cumin
- ¼ tsp salt
- Steam the peas until they are tender, about 5 minutes. Cool.
- In a small bowl, add the peas, avocado, lime juice, cumin, and salt. Blend in a food processor, if desired.
- Stir in tomatoes and onions.
- Refrigerate before serving.
