Pea and avocado spread

This super easy brunch recipe is taken from Sarah Philpott’s beautiful new book – The Occassional Vegan. This pea and avocado spread, also known as God’s butter, tastes amazing! There’s a sweetness of ginger, a kick of chilli and a hint of lime. It’s a perfect treat when you’re working from home, as it’s so quick to make. Do grab yourself a copy of the Occasional Vegan here – it’s a gorgeous book full of easy vegan recipes. (And the orange chocolate brownies are just divine).
