  • Prep Time


  • Total Time


  • Servings



  • 1

    cup frozen green peas

  • 1

    cup parsley leaves, firmly packed

  • 2

    tablespoons fresh dill, chopped or ½ teaspoon dried

  • cup shelled pistachios, raw or toasted, as you prefer

  • Juice of ½ to 1 lemon or lime, to taste

  • Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste

  • Water, just enough to cook peas


Cook the peas in a steamer basket or in a small saucepan with just enough water to keep moist, until bright green and just tender-crisp. In a food processor, combine the peas with the parsley, dill, pistachios, juice of 1/2 lemon or lime, salt, and water. Process until the mixture is an even, coarse puree, stopping occasionally to scrape down the sides. Taste, and if you’d like a more tangy flavor, squeeze the remaining half of the lemon or lime into the mix. Season to taste with salt and pepper, and pulse the food processor on and off a few times to mix once again.
