recipes for delicious things which are quick to pull together and can be offered to friends to stop them getting too hungry while you sort out food-proper are very precious.


as a result i was very keen to try clotilde’s peacamole which she says is her default choice of nibble to offer to guests. i was also charmed by the name and the opportunity to say the french version – poicamole – in an over the top french accent whenever anyone asked me what it was.


it’s very simple – peas blitzed together with almond butter for smoothness and creaminess plus garlic, tabasco sauce and coriander for a bit of a kick. it was nice enough on its own but even better when served with a young goats cheese. thanks clotilde.

It does sound like an amazing and lighter version of one of my favourites guacamole.

i thought that too valli although i'm not sure that it's much healthier given the almond butter...

I made a pea pesto last week, and it was so different.
Very nice and sweet. It was a perfect spring side for fish fillets.
I love the half cracker!

pea pesto is a great idea stacey - will have to see if you've blogged it (and if you haven't, please do!) as i quite fancy trying it myself.
