PFG (Pea-Feta Guacamole)

To be fair, I did leave out several ingredients. I don’t like my guac spicy! I also don’t care for mint! But, even though the pic makes it look pretty unappetizing, this was pretty good! The peas gave it a little texture and you could really taste the feta. This was a nice variation.

juice from 2-3 limes
salt and ground black pepper, to taste
1 jalapeno pepper, thinly sliced (I omitted)



1. Bring a small pot of water to a boil. Add the peas and cook for 1 minute. Drain and place in a bowl of ice water or run under cold water until completely cool. Drain on paper towels.
2. Place the avocados, feta cheese, chili, mint, lime juice, and peas in a food processor or a blender. Blend until creamy. Season to taste with salt and pepper, and scatter jalapeno over the top.
