Recipe: Vegan Guacamole-mole-mole


Ok, so this is my take on one of my most favorite foods when I was a carnivore and didn’t care what they put in anything I ate: Guacamole. Stay tuned, you’ll be surprised!

First things first – don’t judge what you are about to read. Try it and then tell me you don’t LOVE it.

Something interesting about Guacamole that I found after I went Vegan: often times there is either sour cream or yogurt in guacamole…I honestly did not know this! Well there are better an healthier ways to go about that…and here I go!

Things you will need…

  • Hand held blender (It’s the easiest thing to use for this, but you could use a food processor if you want, or even an upright blender).
  • Bowl that will hold 3-4 cups
  • 1 to 2 T of canned chopped green chiles
  • 1 small/medium spanish onion (I like sweet onion in mine because it is more mild – but use whatever you like)
  • 1/2 a medium lemon fresh juice
  • 1/2 to 1 cup Organic tomato (pick your type – I use whatever I have on hand)
  • 2 softish medium Organic avocados
  • 1-12 oz can of sweet peas (unsalted) – Surprise! I know this is scary, trust me! I stole this idea from a non-Vegan Guac recipe from Hungry Girl’s Holy Moly Guacamole, but she uses Yogurt and a bunch of other seasonings/ingredients that I didn’t want to include :).
  • Kosher salt
  • Fresh ground black pepper

That’s it – pretty simple.

Instructions…

  • Blend the peas (after draining) so that you can’t tell it is peas 🙂
  • Add in both avocado – blend again to desired consistency (I like very few chunks, personally)
  • Place in bowl
  • Chop up onion and tomato – add in and combine gently
  • Add salt, pepper (you may want more or less, to taste), lemon juice and green chiles
  • Serve!

I love it, I hope you do too!

  1. I’ve never thought of incorporating peas in to guac, but what a great idea! You really can’t taste them in the recipe? My husband is not a fan at all, but I love them. Thanks for posting!

    • I know! When I read that recipe I had my doubts too – but the key is two things: 1. make sure you use sweet baby peas, it makes all the difference, and 2. make sure you puree those suckers alll the way. I think the only way he would know there were peas in there is if he saw one! 🙂 I’ve made many batches and thus far the recipes I post here have passed muster with both men and women who are carnivorous, so I’m fairly confident.

      Thanks for reading!
