No Doc Guac (continued)
by Missy Chase Lapine
Once cooked, drain the broccoli, spinach, and peas and place them in the bowl of your food processor along with 2 tablespoons of water. Puree on high until as smooth as possible. Stop occasionally and push contents from the top to the bottom. If necessary, add the third tablespoon of water to make a smoother puree.
Makes about 2 cups of puree. Double this recipe if you want to store an extra cup. Store in refrigerator up to 3 days, or freeze 1/4 cup portions in sealed plastic bags or small plastic containers.
