May 24, 2017 | Quick Meals / Snacks

A lovely vibrant green dip, great for a summer lunch or picnic.  Avocados are a highly nutrient dense fruit and are full of healthy fats, this is a great alternative to the usual guacamole, incorporating some lovely seasonal, fresh broad beans.


  • 200g broad beans
  • 1 avocado
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • Small bunch mint
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  • Bring a saucepan of water to the boil, add the broad beans and blanch for two mintues, then drain, and plunge into cold water.
  • Peel off the skins, and put the beans in a food processor.
  • Add the avocado, lemon juice, olive oil, and mint, and blitz until almost smooth.
