Vegan sweet pea and tofu dip


280gms frozen green peas, or fresh peas, sweet baby variety
220gms lite silken tofu
1 Tbsp olive oil, extra virgin
1/2 cup Almond Creamery Almond Milk
1 1/2 tsp lemon zest
2 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
1 tsp table salt, or to taste
1/4 tsp black pepper, coarsely ground, or to taste
1/2 cup(s) mint leaves, fresh, firmly packed
1/2 cup(s) spring onions

Bring a medium saucepan half full of water to a boil; add peas. Return to a boil; boil 1 minute to soften skins. Drain and rinse under cold water; drain again.

Put peas into the bowl of a food processor; add tofu, oil, lemon zest, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Process until mixture is smooth. Add mint and spring onions; pulse until finely chopped.

Scrape mixture into a bowl and refrigerate at least 30 minutes for flavors to blend (or cover and refrigerate up to 2 days). Garnish with additional sliced spring onion or mint, if desired.
