Serving Size: Makes 1 cup Ingredients
  • 1/2 Cup Onion (sliced thin)
  • 1 Garlic Clove (chopped roughly)
  • 1 1/4 Cups Frozen Peas (thawed)
  • 10 Parsley Leaves
  • 3 Basil Leaves
  • 3 T Heavy Cream
  • Salt
  • Heat up a teaspoon of Olive Oil in a medium sized saute pan. Add in your onions and cook for about 5 minuets over a medium heat. Add in your garlic and peas, and cook about 2-3 minutes stirring frequently so as not to burn the garlic. Remove from the heat and pour the contents into a vitamix/blender.
  • Add into the blender your basil, parsley, and heavy cream. Process for about 45 seconds or until extremely smooth. Taste and season with salt - process again.
  • Pour the contents of the blender through a fine mesh strainer in a bowl, to remove any solids - this creates a super light and fluffy puree. *tip: use a ladle to help force the puree through the strainer!
  • When you're ready to serve the puree - just re-heat in a small saucepan.
