Servings: 2 people

Cook time: 20 minutes


Ingredients

1 avocado, peeled and stoned

210g chickpeas, drained

1 clove of garlic, crushed

Pinch of chilli flakes

1 lime, juice only

Tomatoes, as many as you like, chopped

Celery, as much as you like, chopped

Crackers, as many as you like

Bell pepper, as much as you like, chopped

Cucumber, as much as you like, chopped

Carrots, as many as you like, peeled and chopped

Preparation

  1. To prepare the dip, put the avocado, chickpeas, garlic, chilli flakes and lime juice in a blender with some seasoning.

  2. Blitz until smooth, then put it in a small, round serving dish - this will be the Easter bunny’s face.

  3. Place this dish in the centre of a serving tray, then add some small tomatoes on top of the dip to create the bunny’s eyes and nose, and some celery to create whiskers.

  4. Next, arrange the crackers on the serving tray in an ear outline, and fill in the middle of the ears with bell pepper.

  5. Add the cucumber and carrot - and any extra pepper, celery or tomatoes - around the edge as a background for your bunny’s face.



Tips

To store: We recommend eating the chopped veg straight away, but the avocado dip can be kept in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 24 hours.
