Sweet Pea Dip/Sandwich Spread


Just a few simple ingredients create a delicious, quick dip or flavorful bread spread. It’s versatile enough to be a tasty appetizer for dunking fresh veggies and pita wedges or for giving a boost of flavor and nutrition to your next turkey sandwich.

Serves 4

1 tsp olive oil
10 fresh mint leaves chopped (optional)
1⁄8 tsp fresh ground black pepper
1⁄4 tsp salt
2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
1 tbsp water

Place peas, water and lemon juice in food processor; pulse 5 times or until chopped. Add salt, pepper, mint and drizzle in olive oil; pulse about 5 more times until mixed. (For best texture, do not puree.) Serve as a dip or sandwich spread.

For variety, add a few cloves of roasted garlic when processing the peas.
