This pesto is full of flavour and, best of all, it's dairy free as it contains no cheese. It's healthy and a great way to use up peas lying about in the freezer. It will keep in the fridge for up to 5 days.

As with any pesto, this makes a lovely dip, sandwich spread or a pasta sauce. I stirred it through carrot and zucchini noodles at a recent dinner.
