Method

  1. Put all the ingredients, except the oil, pea shoots and ice cubes, into a food processor with a good pinch of salt and pepper and blitz, adding enough water to get a soupy consistency. Taste, and add a little more vinegar and seasoning if necessary. Chill for up to 24 hrs, or at least 2 hrs.

  2. To serve, divide between shallow soup bowls, float a few ice cubes in each bowl (see tip, below) and add a scattering of pea shoots and a drizzle of oil before serving.

Quite spicy due to green chilli (which I liked but daughter not). Tastes like a cross between guacamole and tsatsiki.

As I have most of the ingredients for this growing in the garden I find it a little annoying that the recipe is given only in shopping quantities. With the exception of the spinach,avocado, chilli and spring onions I will have to guess at the rest. My garden doesn't do "half small packs" - it just grows!

Thanks for your comment. Small supermarket packs tend to be 25 - 30g so roughly half of this is the suggested amount. Hope that helps!

So just use a handful of each.
