Broad beans have a naturally rich and buttery texture that make a wonderfully creamy base for dips and slathers.


  • 1 cup of broad beans, fresh or frozen, skins removed
  • 1 avocado, peeled
  • 1 small clove of garlic, minced finely
  • 1/4 cup of plain Greek yoghurt
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • chilli powder, to taste
  • sea salt and fresh black pepper


  1. Place the beans into a saucepan of boiling water; bring the mixture back to a boil and then drain the beans and rinse with cool water.
  2. Put the blanched beans into a food processor, along with the avocado, minced garlic and lemon juice, and pulse the mixture until smooth but with a bit of texture.
  3. Transfer the dip to a bowl and season to taste with the chilli powder, salt and pepper.
