During lockdown, a routine has become even more important than usual. Even though we now work in the same house we have started having an after work catch-up. We sit the back porch in a (now) very quiet village, and chat about our day. During this time we like to have a wee snack and our new favourite is Avocado Whip and Radishes. Smooth, fresh and zesty with a hint of chilli, the perfect dip for fresh crunchy radishes or other crudite such as spicy pickled turnips or lacto fermented carrots .
Avocado whip is a great way to use up a soft avocado or make one go further. Add some freshly chopped herbs for a delicious green dressing.
Avocado Whip and Radishes
- 1 ripe avocado
- 1/2 cup aquafaba mayonnaise
- fresh radishes with greens attached (preferably)
- chilli powder
- lime zest and juice
- sea salt
- ground white pepper
If you don’t keep a jar of aquafaba mayonnaise in the fridge first make a jar.
Use a stick blender, food processor or thermomix to blend avocado flesh with aquafaba mayonnaise.
Add lime juice and zest, and a pinch of chilli. Taste and add more chilli if you’d like then season with sea salt and ground white pepper.
Wash radishes, cut in half leaving the leaves attached for easy dipping.
Chill before serving.
