  • Total Time 1 Hour 25 Minutes
  • Spice Level Mild
  • Prep Time 25 Minutes
  • Servings 6
  • Ingredients 8


  • 125g frozen peas
  • 1 garlic clove, chopped
  • 2 spring onions, trimmed and chopped
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 2 large ripe avocados, peeled, stones removed and flesh chopped
  • 4 tablespoons freshly chopped mint, plus extra leaves, to garnish
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 65g Greek-style natural yogurt, plus extra 1 tablespoon, to garnish


  1. Place the peas in a heatproof bowl and cover with just boiled water. Stand for 5 minutes, then drain and rinse well under cold running water to cool completely. Pat dry with kitchen paper.
  2. Place the peas, garlic, spring onion, lime juice, avocado and mint in a food processor and pulse until smooth, scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed. Transfer to a serving bowl and stir in the salt and yogurt. Season with freshly ground black pepper, if you like.
  3. Cover the surface closely with cling film and refrigerate for 1 hour to allow the flavours to blend. Swirl through the extra yogurt, garnish with the extra mint leaves and a sprinkling of freshly ground black pepper and serve.


For a more unusual twist, replace the frozen peas with frozen edamame beans.

For a chunkier guacamole, only process half the peas and avocado. Roughly mash the rest and stir into the blended mixture with the yogurt.
