This recipe is quick and easy to prepare and versatile. You can use it as a dip for fresh veggie crudite or drizzle it over roast vegetables or salads.

Prep time
Total time
Serves: 7 servings – 1 serve = 2 tbsp
  • 1 cup frozen peas
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • ½ cup ricotta cheese
  • Handful fresh mint
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • Crack of salt and pepper
  1. Add peas to boiling water for about 30 seconds so that they are just beginning to soften.
  2. Remove peas from stove and drain. Run cold water over the peas to cool quickly.
  3. Add peas, olive oil, ricotta, mint, lemon juice, salt and pepper to blender.
  4. Blend until smooth.
If you would like to make this more of dressing than a dip add more olive oil and lemon juice. This dressing works particularly well on roasted brinjal with toasted almonds. You could also use this a great spread on crackers and breads.
