This lighter version of guacamole is extra-creamy because of the addition of protein-dense silken tofu. Not only does it make a super-smooth puree, it reduces the fat and calories in the overall recipe.

Ingredients

Directions

Scoop out the flesh from one avocado and add it to a food processor along with the tofu and 3/4 teaspoon salt. Process until completely smooth, scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed.

Scoop out the flesh from the remaining avocado and place it in a medium bowl. Roughly mash with a fork. Add the avocado and tofu mixture, the onion, jalapeno, tomato, lime juice, chopped cilantro and 3/4 teaspoon salt. Stir gently to combine. 

Transfer the dip to a small serving bowl and garnish with whole cilantro leaves. Serve with tortilla chips and bell peppers.
