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!
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 processor–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.
