Peas give nutrient-rich avocado a boost of fiber. For babies who like less-seasoned food, make a simple pea guacamole using only peas, avocado, and a splash of lime juice.
1 cup frozen petite green peas
1 large ripe peeled avocado, cut in half and pitted
1/4 cup chopped green onions
1/4 cup bottled salsa
1 1/2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
4 sprigs cilantro
2 garlic cloves
How to Make It
Place peas in a vegetable steamer. Steam, covered, 4 minutes or until peas are tender. Combine peas, avocado, and remaining ingredients in a food processor; pulse just until combined. Cover surface of guacamole with plastic wrap. Chill until ready to serve.
for your toddler: Serve the dip with baked whole-grain tortilla or pita, or slightly steamed carrot sticks and other veggies. Serve it as a spread on a tortilla; roll up the tortilla.
