  • 100 g/3 1/2 oz fresh peas or frozen if none available
  • 1 tbsp Tahini paste
  • 2 tsp freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 2 tbsp chopped fresh mint leaves


  • Add the peas to a small pan of freshly boiled water and cook for just 2-3 minutes or until tender, don't over-do it.
  • Drain the peas and refresh them under cold running water to keep their gorgeous green colour.
  • Whizz the peas in your food processor and add the Tahini paste.
  • Finely chop the garlic and mint leaves and add these to the food processor along with the lemon juice and whizz again.
  • Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  • Scoop into a bowl and leave in the fridge for at least 30 minutes to really let the flavours develop.
