Good-for-you guacamole with pitta crisps

For a healthy snack that's full of good fats and free from dairy, try guacamole with added kale, edamame and seeds with crispy pitta chips.

Serves 4

Prep Time 10 min

Cooking Time 10 min


    • 3 wholemeal pittas
    • 2tbsp olive oil
    • 1½tsp fennel seeds
    • Large pinch dried chilli flakes

For the guacamole

  • 100g frozen edamame beans
  • 75g kale
  • 1 small garlic clove, finely chopped
  • Zest and juice 1 lemon
  • 2 ripe avocados
  • 1tbsp pumpkin seeds, toasted, to serve (optional)


  1. Heat the oven to 200°C/fan 180°C/gas 6. Cut the pittas in half horizontally, to make 2 thin layers from each one. Cut each of these into rough triangles. Spread out on 2 large baking sheets and drizzle with the oil, then toss to coat. Crush the fennel seeds with the chilli flakes in a pestle and mortar, then sprinkle over the pitta triangles. Bake for 8 min or until crisp.
  2. Meanwhile, make the guacamole. Put the beans and kale in a bowl and cover with boiling water. Set aside for 3 min to thaw the beans, then drain in a colander and rinse under the cold tap. Drain again well, then transfer to a food processor and blitz until roughly chopped. Add the garlic, lemon zest and juice to the kale mixture. Mash the avocado flesh with a fork, then add this to the food processor, too. Pulse briefly to combine, then transfer to a serving bowl. Alternatively, chop the veg by hand, then combine with the rest of the guacamole ingredients in a bowl.
  3. Sprinkle the guacamole with the pumpkin seeds, if using, then serve with the pitta crisps.
