8-oz. fresh or frozen peas
4 Tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1 clove garlic
1 Tablespoon pine nuts, sesame seeds, cashews or sunflower seeds
1-4 Tbs. water
Add all ingredients to blender and blend until smooth. Add only enough water to thin it enough to whirl in blender.
Chill 1 hour-overnight. Drizzle olive oil on top before serving. Serve with pita chips or cut vegetables for dipping.
Post-note: If you’re not a fan of green peas you can substitute them with black eyed peas or chickpeas and use in the same ways as mentioned above.
