Our garden is just brimming with peas right now. So after salads and stir fry, we got creative with this tasty veggie! This dip is better after it chills in the fridge overnight, but not much of it usually lasts a whole night in our house!
Whirled Peas Dip
1 1/2 cup fresh, shelled peas
1/2 cup green onions, roughly chopped
1/2 cilantro, rinsed & roughly chopped
2 Tbls. lime juice (about one lime)
1 clove garlic, roughly chopped
2 Tbls. vegetable broth
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. black pepper
1 tsp. cumin
1 tsp. dried oregano (or 1 Tbl. fresh)
1 Tbl. vegan mayo (we used Vegenaise)
1 Tbl. vegan cream cheese (we used Tofutti)
2 tsp. nutritional yeast powder
Add peas to boiling water and cook for about 3 to 6 minutes, until bright green and tender. As soon as they’re done, rinse them in a colander under cold water until they are cool to the touch.
Combine peas with all other ingredients in a food processor. Whirl around until smooth and creamy! Mmmm.
Serve chilled with crackers, veggies or use as a sandwich spread.
