Serves: 2 cups
Ingredients
  • 3 cups fresh or frozen peas
  • ¼ cup fresh mint leaves
  • juice and zest of 1 lemon
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon tahini paste
  • salt and pepper, to taste
Instructions
  1. Bring a medium sized pot of water to a boil, and cook your fresh or frozen peas until tender, about 1 minute for frozen peas and 3-4 for fresh. Drain the peas from the water and run them under cool water to stop the cooking process. Allow the peas to cool.
  2. Place the peas in a blender or food processor, along with your mint leaves, juice and zest of 1 lemon, 1 garlic clove, olive oil and tahini. Pulse until smooth, taste, and add salt and pepper to your liking.
  3. Serve the dip in a bowl sprinkled with additional sea salt and drizzled with extra olive oil. This dip can be made a day ahead and stored in an airtight container overnight.
