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.
