Silken tofu provides creaminess for this dairy-free dip. We used scallions and mint but dill, tarragon or basil are just as tasty.

Ingredients

frozen green peas

10 oz, or fresh peas, sweet baby variety

lite silken tofu

8 oz

olive oil

1 tbsp(s)

lemon zest

1½ tsp(s)

fresh lemon juice

2 tbsp(s)

table salt

1 tsp(s), or to taste

black pepper

¼ tsp(s), coarsely ground, or to taste

fresh mint leaves

½ cup(s), firmly packed

uncooked scallion(s)

½ cup(s), chopped

Instructions

  1. Bring a medium saucepan half full of water to a boil; add peas. Return to a boil; boil 1 minute to soften skins. Drain and rinse under cold water; drain again.
  2. Put peas into the bowl of a food processor; add tofu, oil, lemon zest, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Process until mixture is smooth. Add mint and scallions; pulse until finely chopped.
  3. Scrape mixture into a bowl and refrigerate at least 30 minutes for flavors to blend (or cover and refrigerate up to 2 days). Garnish with additional sliced scallions or mint, if desired.
