{WHITE BEAN GUACAMOLE}












This is a great tasting, lower-fat guacamole that our dad learned to make at a health clinic.

1 can white beans, drained and rinsed
1 celery stalk*
1/2 c. onion
2 to 3 cloves garlic
1 large avocado
1 T. lemon juice
cilantro (optional)

• Blend in food processor until smooth.

Note: I confess this is not an exact recipe. I called my dad when I wanted to make it the other day, and he just gave me the list of ingredients. So . . . experiment to taste!

*I just learned that Laura makes this without the celery and likes it better. She also uses garlic powder, onion powder, and cumin . . . seasoned to taste.

What a good idea! I definitely need to try this - we make guacamole about 3 times a week, so it would be nice to cut the fat a little bit. Plus, it will make more!

i like this without the celery--it tastes more like real guacamole to me. i also just use garlic and onion powder, and i do add cumin. we love it!
