sweet pea and avocado hummus

Fresh sweet peas are back! And this dip is a super fast and easy way to enjoy them. If you’re using peas straight out of the garden be sure to blanche them for 2-3 minutes in boiling water and then cool them quickly in an ice bath so that they retain their brilliant colour, but fresh frozen will work just as well.


  • 1 ripe avocado
  • 2 Tbsp. lime juice
  • ½ clove garlic, minced
  • 2 cups sweet green peas, thawed
  • 1 tsp. sea salt cayenne or hot sauce


  • STEP 1: Spoon out the avocado flesh and put into a food processor.
  • STEP 2: Add the lime juice and garlic. Add the green peas and salt, then process until you have a ‘kermit-coloured puree’.
  • STEP 3: Add cayenne or hot sauce for a kick.
