Minted Pea Dip

I know it has been FOREVER since we have posted to our blog.  This recipe inspired me to post.  I found it on a great blog my sister-in-law told me about called

This recipe is so easy and so delicious and to top it all off–good for you too!

2 Cups frozen peas (defrosted)

Zest of one lemon

3 Tablespoons fresh lemon juice

1 small garlic clove, chopped (if you add this to the food process first, you can avoid having to chop it.)

1/4 cup packed fresh mint leaves

2 Tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

2 Tablespoons tahini

1/4 teaspoon sea salt

1.  With the food processor running, add the garlic clove until finely chopped.  Add the rest of the ingredients and puree.

2. Serve with crostini and/or raw crudites.  If you assemble the dip on crostini, you can also shave pecorino or parmesan on top of each hors d’oeuvre or sprinkle grated cheese on top and drizzle a good olive oil over all of them.
