Cook Time: 5 Min

Makes: 6-8 servings

This Spring Pea Puree is a delicious side dish (or semi-sauce) with any protein: Think chicken, beef, roasts, lamb, fish, scallops, shrimp, tofu etc! It adds a vibrant green color to any dish, plus adds a subtle, sweet flavor. It tastes just like fresh peas and the addition of butter makes it silky and luxurious. Itโ€™s a must try this spring!

Ingredients:

  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 lb shelled fresh or frozen peas (about 3 cups)
  • ยผ Springtime Pea Microgreens (plus more for garnish)
  • 1 small onion or 1 large shallot, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • ยผ cup chicken or vegetable broth/stock
  • 1 tbsp fresh parsley, chopped (can sub for mint, tarragon or your favorite herb)
  • 2 tbsp cold butter
  • 2 tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black or white pepper

Instructions:
ย 

  1. Place a saucepan over medium heat, add the olive oil & heat it until hot. Add the peas, onion/shallot and garlic and cook until slightly softened, 1 to 2 minutes for fresh peas or 4 to 5 minutes for frozen.
  2. Add the chicken stock/broth and cook until the peas are tender, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in parsley or herb of choice.

3. Use an immersion blender or pour the pea mixture into a high-powered blender. Add the butter and blend until very smooth.. Add the lemon juice and season with salt and pepper to taste. Blend to combine.

4. For an extra velvety-smooth texture (I recommend!), press through a mesh colander with a rubber spatula.

5. Scoop the purรฉe into a serving dish and top with extra spring pea microgreens (or smear directly on the plates and top with your protein of choice).
