Yield

Serves 8 (serving size: 3 tbsp.)

This blend is a zippy alternative to hummus; serve with crudités or crackers. Sweet green peas offset the kicky heat of wasabi (which you'll find on the Asian foods aisle).

Ingredients

  • 2 cups fresh or frozen green peas, thawed
  • 1/2 cup firmly packed fresh flat-leaf parsley leaves
  • 1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon grated lime rind
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice (about 1 lime)
  • 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon wasabi paste
  • 1/2 teaspoon sesame seeds
