Pea Dip to Dig In

Sweet Pea Dip

This was actually a side dish turned partially into a spread or dip, however you want to call it. You can see in the image below how it looked at the end of cooking in the pan. I usually serve this side dish with fish or other grilled meat. They are great together, but since I had alot of fresh sweet peas, I thought trying something new to help my girls eat this green little legume easier. So I thought turning it into a pea dip and pair it with vegetables, or something spreadable onto bread or crackers.

It worked! It was pretty nice for a vegan option. You’ll see other combination I’ve made using diary in the next posts. Until then, give it a try!
