Light guacamole

10 minutes to prepare Serves 4




The famous Mexican sauce guacamole is an ancient condiment made from avocado, whose recipe dates back to the time of the Aztecs.

This delicious twist on guacamole recipe replaces half the amount of high-calorie avocado in a traditional guacamole recipe with a stealth, low-calorie vegetable such as zucchini, to cut 100 calories and 6 grams of fat, so we can eat more guacamole with fewer calories.
We use raw zucchini because they were very tender, but you can steam it on the stovetop or in the microwave if you prefer!

Here's what you will need for the 4-serving recipe:

1 zucchini, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
1 ripe avocado, cubed
coarsely chopped fresh cilantro
¼ finely chopped onion
2 tablespoons lime juice
½ teaspoon hot sauce, such as Tabasco
EVO oil
salt and pepper


  1. Place zucchini in a blender, together with onion, lime and cilantro. Mix until smooth
  2. Drain in a sieve, pressing lightly on the mix to extract any liquid
  3. Transfer the zucchini sauce to a large bowl; add smashed avocado, hot sauce, EVO oil, pepper  and salt, and coarsely mash until combined
