Lightened-Up Guacamole

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.

2 large ripe avocados, halved and pits removed

8 ounces silken tofu, drained well

Kosher salt

1/4 small red onion, finely diced (about 1/4 cup)

1 small jalapeno, finely chopped (remove seeds for less heat)

1 Roma tomato, finely diced (about 1/2 cup)

3 tablespoons fresh lime juice

2 tablespoons roughly chopped fresh cilantro, plus whole leaves for serving

Serving suggestions: baked blue or yellow corn tortilla chips and sliced bell peppers


  1. 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.
  2. 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. 
  3. Transfer the dip to a small serving bowl and garnish with whole cilantro leaves. Serve with tortilla chips and bell peppers.
