Low-Cal Guacamole Made With Edamame

Save Guacamole Calories by Swapping Avocados With This Green Ingredient

It looks like guac, doesn't it? But the smooth green appearance comes from another nutritious green food — edamame. High in protein and fiber, low in fat and calories, this sweet, fresh, and light dish is perfect for Summer. Make this for your next barbecue to serve with chips, or smear it on sandwiches or hamburgers instead of mayo.

1 Roma tomato, diced
