Pea Guacamole

Guacamole is normally made with avocados, which are grown a long way away (e.g. in Mexico). So, it’s good that we can also make this tasty dip with peas grown here in the UK!


300 g peas (defrosted from frozen)

half a lime, juiced

1 tsp lime zest, grated

2 tbsp olive oil or Greek yoghurt

Dash of Tabasco sauce

2 spring onions

1 garlic clove, minced

15 g (a big handful) of fresh herbs (e.g. coriander or mint), finely chopped



1. Defrost your peas in a bowl of warm water. 

2. Wash and grate the zest off your lime. 

3. Squeeze lime juice. 

4. Chop garlic, spring onions and herbs.

5. Drain the water out of the defrosted peas, and add all the above ingredients to the bowl. (Tip: a tall bowl or measuring jug works best with the stick blender.)

6. Blitz with a Magimix or stick blender.


7. Add a small dash of Tabasco, your olive oil or yoghurt, and stir well.

8. Taste and season if desired. 

9. Chill in the fridge for 30 minutes.


If you find raw garlic too harsh, cook it first. You can roast whole cloves with their skin on in an air fryer. Or, peel and roughly chop them and briefly simmer in a saucepan of water or in a bowl of water in the microwave.

Stick blenders work best in tall, narrow containers like a measuring jug.
