Amazing Pea Purée

Amazing Pea Purée

Amazing because it is so versatile, so easy so healthy and everyone loves it.    I have used it as a pasta sauce, a dip, topping for crostini or canapés,   a side salad and in a sandwich!

2 cups frozen peas

1-2 shallots (use spring onions, or red onions if preferred)

2tbs butter (can use olive oil if preferred)

salt and pepper

  1. Finely chop the onion and sauté until soft.
  2. Add the peas to the pan and then the butter.
  3. Keep the heat low and stir until butter has melted.
  4. Use hand blender to blitz.

 

Optional Extras :  add a chopped clove of garlic to the onion. Mint is another good extra if you wish.  Or try a sprig of fresh thyme.  I choose the herb to complement the rest of the meal.

Serve warm or cold.

For Pasta Sauce :  mix equal parts of pasta water to purée, then add the pasta. (And perhaps some Parmesan and  extra peas)
