Adding edamame to your guacamole is a great way to bump-up the beans in your diet and add extra staying power.  And the edamame makes your guacamole even more colorful.

Makes 6 servings


  • 6 ounces shelled edamame (green soybeans)
  • ½ onion, chopped
  • ½ cup tightly packed cilantro
  • One large avocado, peeled, pitted and cubed
  • 1-2 limes juiced
  • 3 tablespoons tomatillo (green) salsa
  • Finely chopped tomato (optional)
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Place the edamame, onion, and salsa into a food processor. Process until ground to a paste.
  2. Add the avocado, juice of one lime (to start), and cilantro. Pulse until just incorporated but chunky. Season to taste with salt and pepper and more lime juice if desired.
  3. Refrigerate until serving. Just before serving, stir in half of the chopped tomato and top with the rest (if desired).
