Pea pesto is a delicious and versatile sauce that can be enjoyed on pasta, sandwiches, pizzas, and more. It is made with fresh peas, garlic, olive oil, Parmesan cheese, and a touch of lemon juice (See recipe below). The combination of ingredients creates a bright, flavorful sauce that is both creamy and nutty.
Here are two reasons why pea pesto tastes so good:
- The freshness of the peas: Fresh peas are sweet and juicy, and they add a wonderful flavor to the pesto. If you can, use frozen peas that have been thawed and drained, as they will have a more intense flavor than canned peas.
- The balance of flavors: The other ingredients in pea pesto, such as garlic, olive oil, and Parmesan cheese, help to balance out the sweetness of the peas. The lemon juice also adds a touch of acidity, which helps to brighten the flavor of the sauce.
If you are looking for a delicious and easy-to-make dip or sauce, I highly recommend trying pea pesto. It is a great way to enjoy the flavors of spring, and it can be used in a variety of dishes.
