Pea, mint & Parmesan dip

If Hummus had a younger, hip sister, this would be it! This bright green dip is super quick, simple and versatile. You can use it to top off roast veg, chicken, fish, grilled tofu, open sandwiches or even pasta dishes. It also works very well as a dip for fresh veggies or falafels.

  • 2 tbsp grated Parmesan cheese nutritional yeast for vegan
  • 1/2 tsp salt or to taste
