It’s Spring(well at least sometimes it feels like Spring) and I’m in the mood to cook with bright green vegetables!! This recipe is based on a standard pesto recipe but instead of JUST using basil, the recipe includes a cup of green peas. I was intrigued so I tried it. You will notice that it’s ¬†slightly sweeter and has a different texture. I think it’s a keeper. (not all recipes are keepers by the way).


  • 1 cup frozen peas (I used Jolly Green Giant)
  • 3 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh basil
  • ground black pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil


  1. Bring a small saucepan of water to a boil; add the peas and cook until softened. Drain.
  2. Blend the peas, Parmesan cheese, garlic, lemon juice, basil, and pepper in a blender; while the it blends, stream the olive oil into the mixture.
