2 cups frozen green peas, thawed
¼ cup packed mint leaves
¼ cup packed flat leaf parsley leaves
½ cup extra virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons lemon juice
Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
Put half of the peas into a food processor with the remaining ingredients.
Puree to a smooth paste
Turn out into a bowl and combine with whole peas, season as needed.
Would be great garnished with crisp bacon or pancetta, parmigiano, and a drizzle of a good quality balsamic vinegar.
Serve immediately with grilled bread.
