Minted Pea Dip

Minted Pea Dip

This minted pea dip is a healthy and refreshing change from a lot of the cream cheese or sour cream based dips and is really fast to make if you have a food processor.  Tahini ~ which is a sesame seed paste, is the magic ingredient that brings the whole thing together. Trader Joe’s now carries it.  Just thaw some peas (or blanch some fresh shucked peas) and add them to the food processor along with some tahini, fresh mint, garlic, olive oil and lemon juice and whiz it into a puree.  It can be made the day before.  If you wanted to make individual appetizers, you could spread the dip on toasted croutons, add a few whole peas to one side and garnish it with a little sprig of fresh mint and sprinkle some very fine lemon zest over the top, or serve the dip on a platter with veggies, crackers or croutons and let everyone make their own.  Click here for the recipe….
