Pea & Mint Croquettes, Avocado Relish with Sour Cream

Pea and mint croquettes with guacamole and cashew sour cream on spinach on  green plate

I got the idea for this recipe after one of our Lifetime Members used peas as a substitute for corn in this recipe.  I love it when a recipe like this just comes to me.

Pea and mint is such a classic combination and I’ve always loved it with some spice too, which is why I’ve topped these croquettes with a really simple spicy avocado relish.

This recipe does use a dehydrator, but you don’t have to dehydrate them if you’re unable to.  Just leave them in the fridge for a while to firm up.

And as one person asked me on Facebook, yes you can also cook them lightly in the oven if you want to.

Oh, by the way, if you’ve never tried the sour cream before, you’re in for a treat!
