This high-protein guacamole incorporates edamame for a flavourful and satisfying plant-based dip. It’s ready in just 10 minutes with only 7 simple vegan ingredients.


  • 2 medium ripe avocados
  • 1 cup (6 oz/ 170g) shelled edamame
  • 3 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1 jalapeño, deseeded, chopped
  • ¼ cup coriander (cilantro)
  • ½ red onion, roughly chopped
  • 23 garlic cloves
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • To top: Chopped tomato, coriander (cilantro), red onion.


  1. Process the edamame and 1 avocado in a food processor until the edamame is finely chopped, scraping down the sides needed.
  2. Add the remaining ingredients and pulse until a blended but chunky texture is achieved. The chunks of avocado will complement the texture of the edamame, so you don’t want it too smooth here.
  3. Adjust seasonings to see if you prefer more acidity (lime juice) or salt.
  4. Serve and enjoy!


Store leftovers well covered for up to 2-3 days in the refrigerator, though best when fresh.
