Simple Spring Pea Dip. This delicious, bright, and healthy dip is simple to make, coming together in just a few minutes. The Spring Pea Dip is low in calories and includes a lot of seasonal vegetables! It is sweet, tangy, and perfect for any Springtime brunch.
Making The Simple Spring Pea Dip
To begin, I just take a frozen bag of peas and thaw them in cool water. Then, I put the peas into my food processor, or blender, with fresh spinach, feta, parmesan, Greek Yogurt, olive oil, lemon juice, and a small amount of salt and pepper. Pulse until smooth with little chunks.
The great thing about spring peas isn’t just their beautiful green color, they are loaded with fiber and antioxidants! Spring peas also contain a good amount of vitamins C and E, which are perfect for strengthening your immune system.
The spinach and Greek Yogurt are wonderful additions to this dip. The spinach not only adds color and texture but has also proven to lower blood pressure as well as provide a good dose of potassium to your diet. Greek yogurt is an excellent source of protein and calcium. I also use Moire's Kalamata olive oil, harvested in Greece, this oil truly makes all the difference.
Serving The Simple Spring Pea Dip
I serve this dip on a crudité platter, complimenting it with various veggies like cucumbers, carrots, and radishes, creating a colorful and inviting spread. I also love pairing this dip multi-grain bread adding white sharp cheddar, and spreading the pea dip on top, so scrumptious! Bring this dip to your next family gathering or small get-together and enjoy!
