Asian-inspired Edamame Guacamole

Guacamole is a staple appetizer at many Mexican restaurants. The deliciously creamy dip offers the perfect contrast to the crunchy chip. Edamame is an interesting and healthy addition to the appetizer, offering up protein and additional nutrients such as vitamin K and folate. Even better – the fat content of the avocado allows the fat-soluble vitamin K of the edamame to be readily absorbed in the body.
