green pea pesto

This was one of many wonderful dishes served up at a pre christmas get-together we went to last year. It wasn’t until later that we were told all the foods served were very low calorie slimming foods. This dip was my favourite so I made sure I got the recipe, and now I can share it with you. Do try it. It is wonderful!

1 cup frozen baby peas

1 clove garlic, finely chopped or crushed

1-2 spring onions, finely chopped

1 tablespoon lemon juice

3 tablespoons grated parmesan cheese

3 tablespoons oil

1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon salt

Pepper to taste

Dash of chilli sauce or chilli powder to taste

Blend peas and garlic in food processor or blender till roughly chopped. Add half the oil and remaining ingredients and blend until smooth. Add remaining oil and check seasoning. Can thin with a little water if necessary.
