A defense to the controversial pea guacamole plus my take on another version of guacamole with no lime juice!

Pea guacamole recipe adapted from an NY Times recipe.


1/2 cup fresh peas, shucked
1-2 Serrano peppers, minced
2 tablespoons cilantro, minced
2-3 medium avocados
2 scallions, diced
1 lime, juice and zest
1 tablespoon sunflower seeds, roasted
Sea salt


1) Shuck peas and blanch them in salted water for 1 minute. Drain peas and add them to a mini food processor with minced peppers, cilantro, and a pinch of salt. Process until it’s in a rough paste.

2) In a large bowl, add avocados, scallions, lime juice and zest. sunflower seeds, and pea mixture. Mash until mixture comes together. Season with salt.

Serve the pea guacamole with tortilla chips.
