  • 10-12 ounces fresh or frozen peas
  • 2 raw garlic cloves
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • pinch sea salt
  • freshly ground pepper
  • squeeze of fresh lemon juice
  • 10-15 basil leaves, or fresh sprigs of dill
  • 1 spring onion (scallion)


  1. Bring 2 cups of water to a simmer on your stove top. Add your peas to the simmering water, and let cook for only about 2 or so minutes for fresh peas, a short while longer if using frozen. Strain and rinse with cool water. Drain. Pour your peas into a food processor, along with the garlic, olive oil, sea salt, pepper, lemon, spring onion, and fresh herbs. Pulse in your food processor until mostly smooth. Do not over whiz - you want a spreadable pesto with some texture left. Taste, add additional salt and pepper to taste. Serve immediately, or store in an airtight container in your refrigerator and eat within a few days.
