Avocado & Pea Mash

I wasn’t sure what to call this (is it a sauce, dip or mash?) This recipe is incredibly versatile: it can be used as a topping on courgetti, as a dip for crudités or even spread on toast.


Makes 1 small bowl of mash


1/2 avocado

100g peas, steamed

1 garlic clove, chopped

1/2 tbsp olive oil

Juice of 1/2 lime


Pulse all of the ingredients in a food processor to form a green paste. I prefer having a chunky texture, but for a smoother, more sauce-like version, blend with a splash of water until smooth.

For the courgetti:

Serves 2


2 courgettes

2 cloves of garlic, chopped

Knob of butter


Ideally use a spiraliser to make the courgetti, but you can use a julienne peeler to create thin strips of courgette.

You can have the courgetti raw, but if you prefer a cooked version:

Melt the butter in a frying pan and add the garlic. After 1 minute, add the courgetti and sauté for about 5 minutes until softened.

Serve with the sauce.
