Pea and bean dip

Crushed pea and bean dip

A new recipe from the latest TM recipe book and chip, Festive Flavour. I tried this delicious dip at the last Thermomix course. The pea and bean dip is made by steaming peas and edamame beans in varoma then combining with avocado, spring onion and lemon juice. Blitzed for a few seconds and it’s done.  We didn’t have broad beans but substituted with more peas and an extra avocado and left out garlic and horseradish. Added a bit more lemon juice, also had to substitute some leftover blue vein cheese for feta as we couldn’t be bothered making a trip to the supermarket. Seasoned with salt and pepper.

The vibrant green is so appealing and everyone loved the flavour of this zingy dip. We ate it for lunch with toasted pita bread. Husband, who is not usually a fan of dips, really loved this dip and spread it on so thickly that he ate almost 2/3 of the whole bowl. Makes a large bowl, be perfect for entertaining and is a a great way to up the greens. I love the guided chip recipes, still easy enough to alter them to suit as you go when you don’t have all the ingredients.
