"Mock-a-mole" (low fat guacamole)

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Carianne

From Crescent Dragonwagon's "Passionate Vegetarian" book. Very interesting way to have guacamole with much less fat by using low-fat peas to stretch the avocado.

I really liked this. My dh thought it was good, but said you could really taste the peas. I used 2 avocados and skipped the cilantro (personal preference). This might not compare to regular guacamole, but for a low fat dish it was really good.
