Serves: 2
Ingredients
  • 1 cup Shelled peas
  • ⅓ cup Hazelnuts
  • 1 Tablespoon Fresh lemon juice
  • 5 Leaves or so of Fresh mint
  • Extra virgin olive oil to combine
  • Salt/Pepper to taste
Instructions
  1. I tried a fork, a foodmill, and then resigned myself to food processor. Fresh peas are nothing if not resilient. Combine the peas, hazelnuts, lemon juice, mint, and salt/pepper in the food processor and get to whizzing. Slowly drizzle in the olive oil while running until a cohesive paste forms. You can add more, depending on the consistency you want. I left mine a paste chunky enough to stand up to the bread.
