½ cup thawed frozen peas
½ cup chopped thin asparagus (reserve tips)
1 cup mashed avocado
2 tablespoons minced radishes
2 tablespoons minced tomato
1 tablespoon Instantly Fresh Garlic
2 tablespoons ‘instantly Fresh Red Onion
2 teaspoons Instantly Fresh Cilantro
1 lime – juiced
Salt to taste
Add peas and chopped asparagus stalks and tips to microwave-safe container. Fill with water, just to fill over veggies. Microwave on high for 2 to 3 minutes, or just until peas and asparagus are soft-tender. Drain, rinse with cool water, and pour out on paper towel to dry off a bit. Set a few of the peas and asparagus tips aside for garnish later. In small food processor or blender, puree peas and asparagus together – some lumps are fine. Add this puree to bowl with mashed avocado, radish and tomato. Add garlic, red onion and cilantro and squeeze in the juice of one lime. Mix well. Season guacamole with salt, to taste. Garnish with remaining peas and asparagus tips.
