RECIPE | Smashed Edamame, Pea and Avocado
One of our most popular dishes and requested recipes. It's healthy and packed full of protein making for the perfect breakfast toast topping.
2 spring onions, finely sliced
2 cloves of garlic, finely chopped
2 tablespoons of oil (coconut, olive or your preference)
¼ cup of water or vegetable stock
1 cup frozen, shelled Edamame beans
¾ cup frozen peas
1 tablespoon lemon juice or to taste
small handful fresh mint
sea salt and pepper to season
Heat the oil in a medium saucepan over a low heat. Add the spring onions and the garlic and cook for 3 minutes until soft. Add the frozen edamame beans and stock, cover and cook for 3-5 minutes until the beans are just starting to soften. Add the peas and cook for a further 2 minutes.
Remove from the heat, season with salt and pepper and cool for 5 minutes. Using a stick blender (or a potato masher / food processor) blend the mixture until well blended but still a little chunky. If it’s too thick, simply add a little oil, water or stock to loosen the mixture.
While still in it’s shell, score the avocado into chunks. Using a spoon, scoop out the flesh, add to the pea mixture and combine. Add the lemon juice and season. Add extra lemon juice, salt and pepper to suit your taste. Garnish with chopped fresh mint.
