Wasabi, also known as Japanese horseradish, is a strong, hot condiment that can be used for adding an extra punch to all sorts of dishes – including this delicious pea and wasabi dip. Just a couple of teaspoons is all you need for a tasty twist on these classic summer flavours. Serve with crunchy vegetables for a light lunch or healthy afternoon snack.
- 500g frozen peas
- 1 garlic clove, peeled and crushed
- 2tbsp freshly chopped mint
- 1-2tsp wasabi paste
- 100g Greek yogurt
- Cherry tomatoes, radishes, sugar-snap peas, baby carrots, to serve
Cook the peas in boiling water for 2-3 mins. Drain well and rinse under cold water to cool them. Place the peas in the bowl of a food processor. Add the remaining ingredients for the dip and purée until smooth. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
Serve the dip with cleaned raw vegetables. Garnish with a sprig of mint.
For a chunkier texture, pulse the dip with a hand blender instead.
