Green Pea Pesto

Posted by DmentD | Recipes | Friday 20 April 2012 10:46 pm

1½ C (~1½ LB peas in pods) fresh peas or a 10 OZ package standard frozen peas (defrosted)
4 garlic cloves
2 TBS pine nuts (toasted and cooled)
⅓ C finely grated parmesan cheese
¼ TSP salt
Pepper to taste
⅓ C olive oil

Prepare an ice bath in a large bowl filled with ice water. Bring a small saucepan of lightly salted water to a boil. Add peas and cook for ~2 minutes (this leaves them with a bit of structure). Drain peas then add them to the ice bath and allow to cool, then drain again.

Whirl the peas in a food processor with garlic, pine nuts, parmesan, salt and pepper until smooth — ~2 to 3 minutes — scraping down the bowl as necessary. With the processor running, drizzle in olive oil and blend until consistently creamy.
