PROTEIN BOOSTED GUACAMOLE
You can't go wrong with a dip, so I'm here to share this creamy avocado-based green pea and mint dip. It's creamy, hummus-inspired, but without the chickpeas, and using avocado instead. This is an easy-to-make dip (only 15 minutes), and it's a perfect dip to serve with raw vegetables.
Avocados are one of nature's most perfect foods, but if you don't know how to use them, they can get boring. This recipe has two things going for it — first, it combines creamy avocado with minty peas and zesty lime, and second, it's loaded with protein.
After all, healthy eating doesn't have to be boring. This raw, vegan pea and mint guacamole is a perfect example of how to infuse more veggies into your menu with ease. A hit with vegans, vegetarians and meat-eaters alike, the dip also adds a crunchy twist to Mexican night.
WHAT YOU NEED
- 1 ⅔ cups (250g) green peas, frozen
- 1 clove garlic
