Avocado Pea Dip

Pea guac 9

I love creamy guacamole & could eat it all day. In this recipe, I wanted to create a twist to it by adding peas & mint to add fragrance & freshness. To me, this dip encapsulates the taste of summer on a hot summers day!

This dip is delicious with  crudités, super in salads, fantastic with falafels (e.g. sweet potato chilli falafels elsewhere in this blog), blackbean goji chilli burgers (elsewhere in this blog), great with meat or super simply slathered on toasted ryebread or sourdough.

The cashews in this recipe help make the dip creamier & by using a vegan based yoghurt, you can keep this recipe vegan. To boost the nutritive value, you can protein powder (i use plant derived pea or soy protein powder) or milled chia seeds.

I made this dip chunky by blitzing for less time in the blender, but if you like it smoother, just pulse for longer! This dip is incredibly easy to make, so much so you wont want to buy shop-bought dips any more!


Makes: 1 bowl

Preparation: 5 mins


30g raw cashews

1 large avocado, peeled & roughly diced

1 plump garlic clove

3 spring onions, roughly chopped

2 tbsp lime or lemon juice

75g frozen peas, defrosted

Handful of fresh mint

3 tbsp water

1.5 tbsp Greek yoghurt or Vegan yoghurt (coconut and soy work well)

1/2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

1/2 tsp chilli flakes

Optional: 1 tbsp plant derived protein powder (pea or soy work well) or milled chia seeds. If you are using either of these, add 1.5-2 tbsp more water and /or olive oil

Put all ingredients in a food processor or blender & blitz to form a paste. Blitz for less time if you like a chunky avocado dip. Blitz for longer if you like it smoother.

Decant into a bowl & garnish with a sprig of mint. Enjoy!

  • Flavour variation: use a handful of fresh coriander instead of the mint
  • To make it spicier, you can add 1 tsp ground cumin
  • Edamame beans & broad beans can be used instead of peas or a mixture of beans & peas
