Ingredients

  • 1 Cup frozen peas (defrosted)
  • 1 garlic, clove, minced
  • 1 Teaspoon lemon juice
  • 2 Tablespoons fresh Basil, chopped
  • 1 Teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 Teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 2-3 Tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese (optional)
  • 1/3 Cup olive oil

Directions

  1. Using your food processor, add the peas and garlic, lemon juice, basil, salt and pepper then pulse together. If you are going to add in parmesan cheese do it now (it will taste fine without it but I am Italian).

  2. While the machine is running, slowly add the olive oil. This will take about 1 to 2 minutes. Take mixture out of the food processor and transfer to a bowl or container.

Pea Cooking Tip

Beans are done when they can be easily mashed with a fork – make sure to test a few in case they have not cooked evenly.
