• Remember when the New York Times published a guacamole recipe that included peas and tons of guacamole lovers round the world were inexplicably enraged while others were all, “Great idea!” Well, I feel this Edamole recipe — that’s guacamole made with edamame instead of avocado — could incite the same reaction.

The folks over at Greatist just clued us in to the most genius trick: Put the guac in a container, level it out and pour water over it, then put it in the fridge. The water stops the top layer from oxidizing and turning brown, and when you’re ready to eat it, you just pour the water out and give it a good mix and voila! Green guacamole. [Greatist]
