  1. Very good! easy to prepare and I love the fact, that it tastes like the "Real" thing", but stays beautifully bright green! I did add some Chunky Salsa as I do with guacamole as well. Thanks for posting. Koechin
  2. This was very good. Very easy to prepare. It needed more oil to improve the texture. It was quite sweet so I added juice from an extra lime. Allover a tasty, quick and satisfying recipe. Thanks for posting!
  3. This is very close to the recipe I use. I use up to 1/4 c. of olive oil for this amount of peas. What's particularly good about this recipe is that you can modify it to fit your personal preferences - a little more jalapeno or Tabasco for more heat, some chopped tomato or sweet red pepper for contrast - whatever. I made this for a potluck party last weekend - two bowls of real guacamole were on the table as well - this one disappeared first. Thanks for saving me the trouble of posting!


I’m a former interior designer and landscape designer. At the moment I get to enjoy being at home and working only when I want to. I like rollerblading, hiking, backpacking and trips to the ocean. I grew up on a farm in the Midwest and moved to the Northwest when I was thirty, over twenty years ago. I’m afraid they’ll have to bury me here in WA. This is God’s country and I’m never leaving. I have a smallish collection of cookbooks, preferring to use the library and a copy machine. Among my favorites though, are: Recipes 1-2-3, by Rozanne Gold, a collection of recipes containing no more than 3 ingredients (excepting water, salt and pepper); A Treasury of Great Recipes, by Mary and Vincent Price, recipes collected from friends and chefs of great restaurants around the world; The Mediterranean Diet Cookbook, by Nancy Harmon Jenkins, about a collection of cuisines I’m convinced are the healthiest in the world and The Low-Calorie Gourmet, by Pierre Franey. Currently my passions are our dogs, the garden, cooking, the natural world and of course, Dh. I can now add Zaar to that list of passions (translate: addiction). We have three dogs, two rescued and one adopted. They are Sugarpea, a Golden Retriever, Chickpea, a Llasa Apso and Sweetpea, a Shih Tzu; small, medium and large. We’re quite a sight out on the trail. One of the things I am most fond of about living here is the ability to vegetable garden year ‘round.
