Austerity peas please

A quick and tasty dip/side dish that I invented whilst defrosting my fridge.

How come you ALWAYS have a bag of frozen peas in there that you have to eat up in a hurry?!

So - cook the peas in a pan of boiling water.

Slice up a fat chunk of garlic.

Put in the blender together with a handful of fresh coriander, a good squeeze of lemon juice, salt, pepper, a pinch of dried chilli...

add two spoonfuls of Greek-style natural yoghurt....and a good glug of olive oil.

Blitz - adding a bit more olive oil to loosen the consistency as needed.

Adjust seasoning to taste.

Eat as a dip - but also great as a side with fish fingers.

Add a shake of cumin and coriander powder for a slightly different take.

You could also try adding fresh mint.
