Green pea spread

A revival for old, dehydrated frozen veggies. Yes, I'm sure it would taste much better if made from fresh ingredients, but my household seems to need a recipe for forgotten gems every once in a while. This one is great for green peas.

10 oz frozen green peas
2 cloves garlic
3 tbsp olive oil
3 oz grated parmesan
black pepper
2 tbsp fresh basil leaves
lemon juice

Cook the green peas and pat dry. Add to a food processor. Add to it the olive oil and the crushed garlic.

Blend until smooth. Add the cheese and other ingredients and process until ready. Season with salt and black pepper. Freshen with a squeeze of lemon juice, if desired. Serve on crostini with bacon or radish slices.
