Kimberly’s Peacamole Recipe

bowl of peas

Peacamole Ingredients

1lb bag frozen peas
¼ red onion
2 cloves garlic, crushed
1 serrano (less if you don’t want spicy)
juice of 1 lemon
2 tbs salsa fresca
salt or salt substitue to taste

Method

Cook peas for 3-4 minutes in lightly salted boiling water or until tender. Drain and allow to cool slightly. Put the peas into a food processor with all the remaining ingredients (apart from the salsa fresca). Pulse until mixture is crushed but not completely smooth.

Season with salt, freshly ground black pepper. Finally, mix in salsa fresca

Cooking tips

The less water you use when cooking peas, the less vitamin C is lost. Steaming helps to conserve this vitamin.

When boiling frozen peas, add enough water to cover, bring to the boil and then cover and simmer for 3 minutes. To microwave 227 grams (8oz) of frozen peas add 15ml (1 tablespoon) of water, place in a non metallic container and cover. Cook on full power for 4 minutes (750W) or 4 1/2 minutes (650W).
