I cannot remember where I first tasted this spread but I do remember that it immediately felt to be for my liking.
I’m not a vegetarian, but I often cook vegetarian food.
They are light and tasty and, more importantly, vegetarian food is slightly cheaper to make.
The pea spread that I have for you today goes quite well with grilled vegetables.
You can use any combination of vegetables, for example parsnips. It is also very nice served with roasted potatoes or crackers.
This kind of dip is a great option for parties when you welcome a lot of guests and you are unsure what to prepare for them 🙂
Of course, it is also a good addition when served with meat dishes. In my opinion, it fits well with chicken meat.

Good to know when making green peas dip.
I used roasted peanuts to make this dip, they were unsalted. If you use salted peanuts, be careful with the amount of salt you add.
