Minty Spinach-Pea Dip


When I saw that I was getting mint, spinach, and peas in my CSA box tonight, I knew that I wanted to try a fresh pea dip.

1 C fresh, shelled peas
1 C fresh spinach
2 T olive oil
1 t crushed garlic
freshly ground sea salt
freshly ground pepper
3 T fresh mint, chopped

Blanch the peas and spinach in boiling water until the peas brighten in color, approximately one minute. Plunge into cold water, then drain. In a blender, place all of the ingredients except the sea salt, pepper, and fresh mint. Blend until the consistence you want. Gently stir in the mint. Season to taste. Serve with crackers or vegetable crudite.
