Pea Puree

PeaPuree

Fresh peas look so stunning vibrant and bright. This green side dish will cheer up any menu and will go with lots of main meals!

I used to think that pea puree took quit the effort to make, but this dish comes together very quickly. I love the sweet earthy flavor and the rich silky texture. Easy and elegant. High in fiber, protein, vitamins, minerals, and lutein.
