If you’d like to practice patience and shell the snap peas, this dip is worth trying.
This dip is very light yet creamy and delicious with veggies or crackers. You can also experiment with adding 1⁄2 a cup of almonds, hemp seeds, or pistachios for an even creamier dip which will keep you fuller longer!
3 cups fresh green peas, shelled
1/4 cup freshly squeezed lemon or lime juice
1 garlic clove, minced
1⁄2 cup water
1⁄2 fresh herbs, mint or parsley is my favourite 1⁄4 tsp of sea salt
1⁄3 cup extra virgin olive oil
1⁄2 cup nuts or seeds (optional)
Fresh ginger root, grated (optional)
If using nuts or seeds, place in food processor and pulse into small pieces. Add peas, lemon juice, garlic, herbs, salt, and 1⁄4 cup of water. Process all ingredients and continuously add remaining water and oil until desired consistency is reached. Season to taste, adding more herbs, salt or ginger root, if desired.
