Unlike green vegetables with a slightly bitter edge that grownups like (such as broccoli or spinach), fresh peas taste so mild and sweet that children love them once they get past the green color. Ease the way with this cheesy dip served with pita chips or veggie sticks.
|1 1/2 cups fresh peas (or 1 10-ounce package frozen)||2 tablespoons chopped fresh mint (optional)|
|1/2 cup Parmesan cheese||1 tablespoon olive oil|
|1/4 cup plain Greek yogurt (or sour cream)||2 Tablespoons pine nuts|
Drop the peas in a small saucepan of boiling water and cook with the lid on for 4 minutes, until tender. Drain and rinse under cool water.
Reserve 1/2 cup of whole peas and put the rest in a food processor along with all the remaining ingredients except for the pine nuts. Process until smooth and creamy.
Add the reserved peas and pine nuts and pulse just to combine. Season to taste with a bit of salt if necessary. Serve with pita chips or carrot and celery sticks.
