We love 2018 Best of Bermuda “Award of Excellence” winner, Bermy Fresh for their dedication to growing and distributing good quality produce and building a community of people who care about health and the environment. A great way to utilize their pea shoots is to mix up a batch of pea shoot pesto to serve on pizzas, sandwiches and salads – it’s healthy and delicious too!
1 cup peas
1 clove garlic, peeled
salt and pepper to taste
2 cups pea shoots
1 tsp. lemon juice
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
Place peas, garlic, salt, pepper, pea shoots, and lemon juice into a food processor. Pulse a few times until everything is coarsely chopped.
While the food processor is running, slowly stream in olive oil and blend until everything is incorporated into a smooth pesto. Scrape down the sides of the food processor with a spatula and pulse once more to incorporate.
Serve immediately or store pesto in an airtight container in the fridge for up to a week. This pesto also freezes beautifully if you want to keep it longer!
