LeaderBrand Broccoli, Pea and Mint Dip with Homemade Wholemeal Crackers

Serves 4-6

Directions

Pre-heat oven to 160°C and line a baking tray with baking paper. Place flour and seeds in a food processor. Add water and butter and pulse until the dough comes together in a rough ball. Roll dough through a pasta machine until about the thickness of a coin. Alternatively, roll it out on a floured bench using a rolling pin.

Cut dough into wedge shapes. Brush with oil, sprinkle with sea salt and bake for 10-15 minutes until a light golden colour. Remove, cool and store in an airtight container until required.

Cut the broccoli into small florets. Blanch in boiling water for 2 minutes, then drain and refresh in cold water. Place the peas in a bowl and pour boiling water over them to defrost, and then drain.

Use a stick blender or potato masher to mash the peas, broccoli, basil, garlic, mint and Parmesan cheese together. It needs to be mixed but not over mashed, so the mix is still slightly chunky. Add the lemon juice and season to taste with salt and ground black pepper.

Serve in a shallow bowl and garnish with fresh basil leaves. Serve with the homemade wholemeal crackers.
