This easy dip is great for impromptu parties when you only have your store cupboard to rely on!
- 450g/1lb frozen petit pois or peas, defrosted and drained
- ½ red onion, finely chopped
- 1 garlic clove, finely chopped
- 1 small bunch fresh mint leaves
- 115g/4oz plain yoghurt

- 1 tsp ground cumin
- ½ tsp ground coriander
- 1 lime, juice only
- salt and freshly ground black pepper
- 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

Place the peas, onion, garlic and mint leaves into a food processor and blend to a thick purée.
Add the yoghurt and blend again, leaving the mixture slightly lumpy.
