2 sticks celery
1/2 avocado 
50ml coconut water 

1 head celery 
Few sprigs fresh coriander 
Sprinkle chilli flakes 
1 head round/butter leaf lettuce 
2 cups peas 

Simply blend all the dip ingredients and serve. Chop up the celery as shown then top everything with coriander and chilli flakes :) delicious! This is my favourite dip to date! 

In your blender blend the peas, some coconut water and some celery. And you have a pea purée dip! Into a lettuce leaf spoon in both of the dips and you have a lettuce taco :)
