  • 2 cups fresh english peas shelled
  • 3/4 teaspoon cumin
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1/4 cup tahini
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup fresh herbs any combination of cilantro, basil, parsley, chives, chervil, mint
  • salt and pepper to taste


  1. Cook peas in a saucepan of boiling salted water  6 to 10 minutes. When sweet and tender, immediately remove the peas from the boiling water with a slotted spoon and transfer to an ice bath to stop the cooking. Let sit until the peas are fully cooled, 1 to 2 minutes, then drain.

  2. Combine peas with remaining ingredients in a food processor. Puree until smooth. For a smoother texture, add olive oil, one tablespoon at a time until desired consistency is achieved.
