Asparagus Guacamole

Not a fan of avocados? Looking to watch your waistline? This is only 20 calories per serving, and practically no Weight Watchers points. It can get a little watery, if you want to minimize that, keep stirring it or add some sour cream.)

1 1/2 pounds asparagus, cut into small pieces
1 tablespoon fat-free Greek-style yogurt (you could also use sour cream or do half and half)
1 tablespoon lime juice
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
1/4 cup onion thinly sliced and chopped
1 jalapeno pepper, minced
1 tablespoon minced garlic
1 tomato, diced
1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
hot pepper sauce to taste
salt and ground black pepper to taste

Place the asparagus into a steamer insert and set into a pot over one inch of water; bring the water to a boil. Place a cover on the pot and steam the asparagus for 5 minutes. Transfer the asparagus to the bowl of a food processor and puree until smooth.

Combine the asparagus puree with the yogurt, lime juice, cilantro, green onions, jalapeno pepper, garlic, tomato, Worcestershire sauce, and hot pepper sauce in a large bowl; gently stir to combine. Season with salt and pepper. Chill in refrigerator until completely cooled.
