This Thai green dip makes a nice change from your usual hummus and creamy dips. A healthy blend of broad beans, peas, fresh herbs and spring onion, the mixture of soy sauce and Thai herbs brings plenty of flavour to the dish

Ingredients

  • 100g fresh or frozen broad beans
  • 100g fresh or frozen peas
  • 2 spring onions, trimmed and chopped
  • 1 tbsp frozen Thai herb mix
  • 1-2 tsp sesame oil
  • Dash of Thai fish or soy sauce
  • Good squeeze of lime juice, optional
  • Handful of fresh coriander (or mint) leaves, optional
  • To serve
  • :
  • Young carrots, radishes, cauliflower florets, and pepper strips
  • Pitta bread, toasted

Method

  • Bring 200ml water to the boil in a pan. Add the beans, peas, spring onions and herbs, half cover with a lid and simmer for 5-8 mins, until tender. With a stick blender, purée the vegetables, herbs and liquid in the pan, adding the oil and fish or soy sauce, plus lime juice and coriander or mint, if using, to taste.

  • Serve with the fresh veg and pitta bread, for dipping.

If you don’t have frozen Thai herbs, you can use Thai green curry paste instead.
