We love creamy, delicious guacamole, which is traditionally made with one of our favorite superfoods, avocados. But, this guac recipe is different, with no avocados in sight! The green color actually comes from edamame, the boiled soybeans that contain phytochemicals called isoflavones, which may help fight cancer and prevent heart disease.

We love creamy, delicious guacamole, which is traditionally made with one of our favorite superfoods, avocados. But, this guac recipe is different, with no avocados in sight!

The green color actually comes from edamame, the boiled soybeans that contain phytochemicals called isoflavones, which may help fight cancer and prevent heart disease.
