No, that’s not a typo. This is (another) recipe I picked up a bit ago from one of the blogs I read. Meant as a lower fat/cal stand-in for guacamole, this recipe replaces the avocado with edamame.
I’ve got to say, given the choice between this and guac, I choose guac. At the same time though, I tend to get carried away with guacamole (and even though it’s healthy fat, it’s still a lot!). So, if you want a similar taste and a bigger portion, edamole is a great alternative to throw in the mix now and then.
