Lemony Pea & Avocado Dip


This yummy dip from Nadia Lim’s ode to vegetables, Vegful, is a nice diversion from the usual guacamole – not that we don’t LOVE guacamole!

Serve with crudités, corn chips, lavosh or on bruschetta topped with a crumble of feta and drizzled with olive oil.

GISBORNE AVOCADOS

Dreamy, creamy, smooth avocados are a “can’t live without,” in our books.  

That’s why we offer two different varieties - Hass and Reed avocados - so we can extend our avocado eating season as long as possible!

Hass avocados are the most common commercial variety in New Zealand, and for good reason. They have a lovely, silky, creamy texture. Green and hard when unripe, they slowly turn a dark green/black colour and soften when they are ready to eat.

Reed avocados are among the largest of the avocado varieties. They have a smooth buttery avocado texture and taste. Reed avocados remain green, even when they are ripe. To check for ripeness gently press the stem and if it depresses, it’s ripe! Don’t leave it until the whole fruit feels soft - by then it’ll be overripe.
