Pea and green onion pesto

It looks like an eternity since the last time I posted! A great opportunity came up and I start writing for an amazing food blog called eatin’s Canada and my schedule is more full than usual! If only  day had more hours…!

  I experiment  a lot these days. I attempted to make croissant but I failed miserably! Of course I don’t give up! One of my experiments was the pea and green onion pesto. Usually I don’t like peas,but this pesto is so tasty,that even my picky husband enjoyed it,so,as you understand


imageit was a big hit!

Servings: 1 cup

preparation time: 5 minutes


  • 1 cup peas,thawed if frozen
  • 1 clove garlic,smashed
  • 1 green onion,chopped
  • 1/4 asiago cheese,shredded
  • 1/4 cup walnuts,roughly chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh thyme
  • salt and pepper to taste
  •  1/2 cup olive oil


In a food processor, add the peas and the walnuts and pulse,add the garlic,cheese,green onion,salt and pepper,thyme and drizzle the olive oil,till it becomes a nice and smooth sauce. You can add some lemon zest if you desire.

Your sauce is done! I toasted a slice of bread,spread my pesto sauce and a slice of prosciutto..  The flavors are so perfectly blended together,that you will never tell it’s made from peas! The green onion really brightens up the sauce and it takes pesto to another level!

In the end, I think I may fell in love with peas….!
