This is one of our favorite ways to enjoy peas; it’s absolutely scrumptious! Serve with pita chips or crackers. Or just get out a spoon and dive in!
1 c. shelled peas (or frozen)
1/2 small garlic clove, minced
1 Tbsp. fresh mint leaves
1 tsp. dried tarragon
1 Tbsp. lemon juice
3 Tbsp. olive oil
Salt and pepper
Bring a pot of water to a boil. Shell the peas and put into strainer or colander that will fit down into the pot while you’re holding it. Dip it in and allow peas to blanch for 30-60 seconds. These peas are super fresh and won’t take long! Run under really cold water for a few seconds and set aside to drain.
Puree with all other ingredients in a mini food processor or blender until smooth.
