Vibrant Green Pea Dip {Raw}

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!

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.
