Try a lighter version of guacamole made with edamame and avocado.
Surprise – no healthy round-up today as today is the day for Surprise Recipe Swap. This is my second month and I was assigned See Aimee Cook. In addition to our love of food, we both have dogs named Lucy. I knew I liked Aimee. She is also an ordained Minister and originally hails from Texas. Aimee now lives on North Carolina and likes to include food from both States into her cooking.
I had a hard time narrowing down my one recipe to make. I will definitely be trying Aimee’s Grilled Polenta with Corn and Parmesan Cheese this summer. I just love the idea of this side dish. I also fell in love with Creamy Baked Chicken Taquitos. Taquitos are always a crowd favorite at a party. Tonight we are having a dish she introduced me to from Closet Kitchen – Tequila Lime Grilled Chicken Club Sandwich with a few healthy substitutions of course. In the end it was that recipe which lead me to the recipe I am making today from Aimee’s blog, Edamole. It is an edamame and avocado guacamole. This type of dip has been on my radar for a long time and since I liked the changes and explanation Aimee made, I went for it. I made a few substitutes to cut down the fat a little.
I almost always have frozen edamame in the freezer. It is a great snack and is so easy to throw in dishes for extra protein and fiber. My daughter is a guacamole aficionado. She devours the stuff as quickly as possible. I knew it would be a hard sale for her. I, on the other hand, could not wait to eat it. Like so many dips, it tastes better after it sits in the refrigerator for a while. You really want the ingredients to come together. I would serve this with some baked plantains. (recipe coming next week) or some low-fat tortilla chips. We love Xochitl. They are so delicious but are lower in calories and also come in salt free. I find them with the organic snacks in my grocery store.
