Vegetarian peas & avocado spread

This week I made spelt bread. And I discovered this lovely peas & avocado spread to accompany the bread as appetizer. Delicious and vegetarian!

I am a late chef. I get in my kitchen between 9-10 PM to start preparing my evening meal. My stomach starts making noises at 7 PM. So in between 7 & 9, you basically find me with my head in the refrigerator. Snacking on every piece of vegetable, meat, fish etc I find in there. And avocado. Definitely avocado since I absolutely adore the green vegetable.

This week I made spelt bread. And I discovered this lovely peas & avocado spread to accompany the bread as appetizer. Delicious!

Time needed: 5 min
Dishes: 1 small bowl & 1 fork

Ingredients for peas & avocado spread (to cover 5 slices of bread)

  • 1 avocado
  • 1 small can of peas
  • juice of half a lime
  • salt / pepper

How to make peas & avocado spread

  • Put the avocado, peas and lime together in a bowl
  • Smash and blend everything together with a fork
