to dip - sweet pea mint silver onions spread

This dip, created by Sarah from My New Roots, is originally a sauce to add to some zucchini noodles, but works great as a dip!!
Keep some peas in the freezer, so you can wip up a batch for those upcoming impromptu summer BBQ's!

to make - sweet pea mint silver onions spread

So delicious!!

sweet pea mint silver onions spread
recipe from My New Roots
recipe type: to serve on the side, to dip

what you need:
24 fresh pearl onions, peeled (substitute frozen if need be)
2 cups organic frozen peas
3 tbsp fresh mint, roughly chopped
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
1 tbsp fresh lemon juice
1/2 tsp maple syrup or 3 drops liquid stevia
pinch himalayan salt or good sea salt
freshly ground black pepper

what to do:

Place the pearl onions in a covered steamer basket over boiling water and steam for 8-10 mins till layers just begin to separate and they appear translucent. (If using frozen pearl onions your steam time will be a little less).
Add frozen peas and steam for 2 minutes longer, stirring at the one minute mark to ensure even cooking.
Remove from heat and pour half the mixture into a small bowl and the other half into your food processorโ€“be sure to divide the onions evenly.
To the food processor, add the olive oil, lemon juice, mint, salt, pepper and maple syrup. Process until creamy but not completely smooth, leaving a little texture.
