Why Use Frozen Peas?

Frozen peas often keep their colour and makes the Avocado Pea and Mint Dip look extra beautiful and green.
How to Make Your Avocado Pea and Mint Dip
Honestly this would have to be the quickest and simplest Avocado and Pea dip recipe to have on hand.
Pop your frozen peas into a bowl and cover with boiling water for 5 minutes.
Strain and add all the other ingredients – lemon juice, sprigs of mint, avocado, olive oil, salt & pepper and mix up in your food processor. Voila! your mix is done.
What Consistency Should the Dip be?
A little bit of chunkiness adds a nice texture to this recipe. It’s totally up to you but it’s nice to have a little bit of lumpiness.
Some like it to be an almost a Peas and Avocado puree consistency which then becomes more of a spread rather than a dip.
What to eat with your Avocado Pea and Mint Dip

How long will the Avocado, Pea and Mint dip last?
Good question. I think this is a dip you should consume within a couple of days. Well you might find that it won’t even last that long. Ha ha. 😄
Store you dip covered in the fridge. Give it a quick stir if it’s been in the fridge longer than 12 hours to freshen it up.
