Green peas pesto is a healthy and delicious sauce that can be prepared very easily. I found this recipe in Aldi's website.
This was the first time I tried pesto, and my family really liked it. I served it as chutney with the savoury cake and it was really delicious.
Preparation Time: 15 minutes
Makes: 6 servings
Ingredients 1 cup green peas, half cooked
1/2 cup red onion chopped
2 tsp lemon juice
1 garlic clove
1 tsp ground black pepper
1-inch ginger piece
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
2 tbsp grated coconut
1 green chili
Salt to taste
Combine the half cooked peas, onion, garlic, ginger, green chili, curry leaves, coconut, lemon juice, black pepper and salt in a grinder. Crush the mixture in a grinder.
Add the olive oil little by little while grinding. Make into a coarse paste.
Transfer to a bowl. Serve with bread or top a crostini with this delicious pesto.
You can make the pesto 3 days in advance and refrigerate in an air-tight container.
