Ingredients

Hummus

  • 1 avocado
  • 200 g frozen peas
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 2 tbsp tahini
  • 75 ml olive oil
  • 2 tbsp cold water
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 4 mint leaves

Toppings

  • mint leaves
  • coriander
  • 3 snow peas sliced thinly lengthways
  • pickled onions
  • 1 tbsp pepitas

Instructions

Method

  • Blanch the peas in boiling water and refresh them *see tips*
  • Blend the tahini with 2 tbsp cold water to loosen it up a little and smooth it out
  • Add remaining ingredients and blend for 1 minute on high
  • Garnish and enjoy with crackers as a dip OR serve it with some grilled pork or chicken!

Notes

Essential Tools

  • ninja kitchen blender
  • chopping board
  • chef knives
  • measuring utensils

Tips/Tricks

  • to blanch something is to place it in boiling water for a moment, to refresh means to place it into ice-cold water. The purpose of this is to defrost the peas but also to keep the nice bright green colour
  • the hummus is at it’s best the day of making it. It will last for up to 3 days in the fridge BUT it will start to darken in colour as the avocado oxidises
