out the avocado and place in the food processor. Let's take a minute to thank the inventor of this little gem. It's a wonder,a time saver. A boon to cooks' universal.
I for one would not want to be without mine. That being said; chop the tomatoes by hand the food processor renders them unrecognisable.
(rule # 25)There is always a trade off.
Making sure no one is around add the whole can (15oz.) of peas to your processor, with a 1/4 cup of the tofu. Now blend till smooth. I add my onions and peppers here. One jalapeno pepper and 1/2 of a sweet
It doesn't matter if you can tell what they are, little bits of "zippy" in
a sea of green yummy goodness I hope.
Transfer to a different container.... here is where you get left to your own devices. You could put this in a really nice serving bowl if that is the practice at your house, I would not.
(rule #63 Don't draw added attention to yourself when trying to fool anyone.)Or KISS. Keep it simple stupid.
This is just asking for questions. Questions that just don't need to be asked or even pondered.
Fold in the tomatoes and chill for about 2 hours or over night.
Now is the tricky part.
Judging you family .... no no no not that kind of judging. Unless your into all the drama and grief you bring on yourself.
Assess the group tendencies towards anger and violence
(rule #6 Asses the situation.)
How mad at you are they going to be if you tell them after they eat this new lower carb., fat, and calorie
recipe change. Is telling them worth it.
You have to find the "Joy Level" received by the telling.
To do this you will need to assign your laugh factor a number from 1 to 100 subtract the "cold shoulder level"
(also on a 1 to 100 scale) you may receive from the party fooled.
This is the "Joy Level". This number divided by number of days it will take them to get over the trick you
played on them.
If you do not get a number grater then 8 I say keep it to yourself or blog about it,but don't tell.
Here is the recipe from Woman's World
Mash 1 15oz can of young peas,drained.
Add 1/2 cup mashed avocado
1/4 cup well drained silken tofu
4 tsp lime juice
1/2 tsp. minced garlic
1/4 tsp salt
1/8 tsp. black pepper
1/4 of an onion chopped
1 sm. jalapeno
ground cumin & chili powder to taste
fresh cilantro if desired.
(or if you like the taste of soap in your food.)
Yeah I'm one of them. I don't know why but this stuff taste like soap to me, and it makes me Itch if I get it on my skin. But that's another
So on Hungry Girl she says it's about 78 calories for 1/3 cup using Greek yogurt in place of the tofu. With the tofu it's about the same only
85 calories for the same 1/3 cup. and no dairy.
So I liked this dip. It was
wonderful on my taco salad and really good on my special k "chips"
Mother in law did not see any difference.
I'm not telling anyone I made a big change in the Guacamole recipe for now. Well no one but you guys. "Wink,wink,nudge nudge."
The Joy Level of this trick is in the fact she and I ate something that was lower in fat and good for us too.
