As usual, I am late with my recipe challenge post (2 weeks to be exact)!
I was on the train home from the city tonight and thought about what I should make. I wanted tacos so I decided to create some sort of Edamame guacamole! I stopped at the grocery store to pick up some ingredients that I thought would compliment and got started!
- 1 cup shelled edamame beans
- 1 avocado, sliced
- 2 cloves garlic, chopped
- 1 jalapeno, chopped
- juice from 1 lime
- small handful of cilantro, chopped
- kosher salt
- red pepper flakes
- 3 tablespoons water
Combine edamame beans, avocado, garlic, jalapeno, lime juice and cilantro in the bowl of a food processor.
Add water and pulse the mix until the guacamole is creamy and smooth. After completed, top with salt, pepper and/or red pepper flakes!
I used the guacamole as a liner of my soft tacos! I topped it with brown rice, roasted red peppers, medium salsa, Chobani plain greek yogurt and Sriracha! It was perfect. I love tacos.
Next time I will put less garlic in the mix because it was very noticeable (some like a lot of garlic, I do not)!
