Despite Forrest Gump’s insistence on the compatibility of peas and carrots, I think peas and avocado are a much better combination.  I’ve done this dip before with basil (yum!) but today we had fresh mint on hand.  I love it with fresh, crunchy vegetables but it would be great on tortilla chips or even over pasta.- Amanda


1 cup peas

1 avocado, pitted

1 lemon, juiced

2-3 cloves garlic, chopped

handful of mint

salt and pepper


1.  Pulse in a food processor until smooth.
