Smashed Chilli and Lemon Peas

What do you do when there's no avocado left?! Option 1.) cry and have a melt down. OR 2.) make smashed peas instead. The ultimate first world problem. I'll go with the latter - no one's got time to cry over avocados when peas can make an amazing alternative. They have a similar fibre content as our beloved avo yet double the protein.

1 cup of Frozen Peas
2 tablespoons of Lemon Juice
2 tablespoon of Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1/2 teaspoon of Chilli Flakes
Season to taste with salt and pepper

  1. Leave peas to thaw for an hour or microwave for 20 seconds. Both work equally well.
  2. Drain any water residue from the defrosted peas.
  3. Mash peas with fork and add in other ingredients. Mix together.
  4. Use as a topping on toast or in a big salad bowl.
