Instructions

  1. Whizz the peas, olive oil, lemon juice and garlic together in a food processor, then tip into a bowl. Stir through the feta cheese and mint.
  2. Slice the avocado in half, removing the pit, and rub the top of each half with the cut side of a lemon (to stop it going brown).
  3. Pile the pea mixture into the avocado halves, then sprinkle over a little more mint and lemon juice to taste. Grab a spoon and enjoy!

Recipe Notes

You could also try spreading the pea mixture on toast to make a crostini or even stirring it through pasta :-)
