2 cups fresh peas, shelled (or frozen peas, defrosted)
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 lemon, zested and juiced
1/4 cup mint leaves, finely chopped
1/2 cup mascarpone cheese
Salt and pepper
Fresh vegetables, pita bread, or crackers to serve
If using fresh peas, add to a pot of salted boiling water, and cook for about 3 to 5 minutes, until tender. Drain the water and cool the peas completely.
Add peas, garlic, lemon zest and juice, and mint to the bowl of a food processor, and process until smooth. Stir in the mascarpone and season to taste with salt and pepper.
Serve with your favorite fresh vegetables, pita bread, or crackers.
