Eleanor Ozich's Pea Gucamole

The most insanely delicious and incredible pea, lemon & garlic guacamole. In this sensation of a dip, I have added plenty of lemon juice & zest for a citrus kick, a large handful of fresh mint, italian parsley & oregano, a good drizzle of extra virgin olive oil, and a couple of large handfuls of toasted pumpkin, sunflower & sesame seeds to give fantastic rustic texture. A hint of chili also wouldn't go a miss if thats your thing. See the recipe below. Enjoy!


2 perfectly ripe avocados
1 cup cooked peas
2 cloves of garlic
a large handful of mint, italian parsley and oregano
zest and juice of 2 lemons
a good drizzle of extra virgin olive oil
1/2 cup of pumpkin, sunflower seeds.
sea salt


Toast the seeds in a dry skillet until fragrant. Set aside to cool slightly.

Add all of the ingredients in to a food processor and process for 30 seconds or so.  I like mine quite chunky, the more rustic the better. Season to taste with sea salt and pepper.

Serves 4-6
