Pea and Hummus Dip

This is a perfect spring and summer dipping dish. It smacks of the first produce of the season and is such a lively green color, it would look great withbeef tenderloin or shrimp, or just on it’s own.

 

Ingredients 

1 pound bagfrozen peas, thawed

10 mint leaves

2 medium cloves garlic, peeled

½ teaspoon salt

1/8th teaspoon black pepper

6 tablespoons good quality extra virgin olive oil

Instructions

Serves 8 as an appetizer 

Pea and Hummus Dip 2

Place all the ingredients in a foodprocessor and puree till well blended and relatively smooth. Serve cold with pita chips to dip. Or spread on crostini and top with a thin slice of beef tenderloin for a great hors d’oeuvre. Keeps in the fridge covered for at least 4 days.
