Pea And Mint Dip
This weekend I made a few recipes at The Life Arts event on the chef stage.
This one was a great success so I thought I would share it with you all.
1 ⅔ cups (250g) green peas, frozen
1 clove garlic
2 tbsp. lemon juice
2-3 sprigs fresh mint, leaves only (or you can use basil too)
Place frozen peas in a bowl and cover with boiling water. Let them stand for a few minutes until defrosted, then drain and transfer to a food processor or high speed blender.
Add in the garlic, lemon juice, avocado, mint leaves, and season with salt and pepper. Blend until smooth. Add 1-2 tbsp. of cold water if the dip is too thick. Taste and adjust seasoning to your taste.
Serve as a dip with fresh vegetables, crisps, lettuce wraps or cucumbers
