Avocado, Spinach and Pea Purée


  • Half of a ripe avocado
  • Half a packet of fresh spinach- washed
  • Half a cup of garden peas
  • Dried thyme
  • Dried mint
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • White wine
  • Juice of half a lime
  • Olive oil



  1. Start by chopping the garlic into small pieces and fry with the spinach, a drizzle of olive oil and salt and pepper in a frying pan for a couple of minutes on a medium heat.
  2. Then add the peas to the pan and cook for 7-8 minutes. The peas will start to mush at this point.
  3. Add a tablespoon of white wine and cook for another 2 minutes.
  4. Roughly mash up the avocado into chunks and put into a blender along with a sprinkling of dried thyme and mint.
  5. Squeeze the lime into the blender and add the contents of the frying pan. Blend together until satisfied with the consistency.

This purée is suited to lamb dishes.

Enjoy 🙂
