Curried Pea Dip

Whenever I need a last-minute appetizer or snack, I pull out a bag of frozen peas, cook them briefly to defrost, then pulse them with whatever flavorings I have on hand like garlic, curry powder and coconut oil. This dip is always a huge hit served with grilled bread or crudite.

Ingredients

1 tablespoon extra-virgin coconut oil

1 onion, diced

Sea salt

1 clove garlic, minced

2 teaspoons mild curry powder

2 cups frozen peas, defrosted

1/4 cup thick yogurt or coconut yogurt, plus more for serving

Directions

  1. Warm the coconut oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add the onions and saute until golden, 6 to 8 minutes. Add a pinch of salt and the garlic and cook for another 3 minutes. Stir in the curry powder and peas and cook for 2 minutes. Remove from the heat and cool slightly. Place the pea mixture in a food processor with the yogurt and 1/4 cup water and puree until smooth, adding more salt to taste. To serve, transfer the dip to a bowl, top with a spoonful of yogurt and stir a few times to create a swirl.
