A recipe from my fabulous friend and roommate, Nini. 

Ingredients:

  • 1 garlic clove, peeled and smashed
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen peas, thawed if frozen
  • 1/4 cup walnuts
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 pinches salt
  • 1 pinch red pepper flakes

Method:

1. In a saute pan, cook the garlic clove in the olive oil on a medium heat until softened, about 5 minutes.

2. Pulse the walnuts in a food processor.  Add the remaining ingredients to the food processor, including the garlic and olive oil. Add about a tbsp of water.

3. Pulse the mixture until thoroughly combined.

4. Taste and add more salt if needed.

5. Enjoy on top of zucchini noodles or as a dip for veggies!
