For 4 Servings(s) ()


  • 1 pound(s) peas, frozen (500 g)
  • 0.38 cup(s) of fresh mint, chopped up (100 ml)
  • 0.38 cup(s) fresh parsley, chopped up (100 ml)
  • 0.5 teaspoon(s) sea salt
  • tablespoon(s) cream, fresh (15 - 30 ml)

Quick Pea Pesto Directions

    1. Steam the peas without water if they're still frozen. I prefer the young, tender peas. Drain the peas in a sieve after cooking.
    2. Drain, put into food processor, and add the mint, parsley and salt.
    3. Depending on the consistency of the pea puree, add 1 to 2 tablespoons of fresh cream, or more if you like.
    4. Ground nutmeg is an optional extra seasoning. Depending on taste, you might want to add more mint or/and parsley. This is a nutritious side dish.
    5. Great as a side with roast chicken or lamb.
