"There it is!" said Bryan. Oh the excitement of seeing Spring come to the hills of this farm. Bore bees were busy digging holes inside of the greenhouse and buzzing around while Bryan was venturing into the Spring garden to scope out the new plants. We had been patiently waiting for the last several weeks to see these little peas show themselves and now the wait was over. For Bryan; who is a vegan, these snow peas represent a total package. At their easiest, a wash in the vegetable sink in pop directly in mouth. However; quite often after the day has set and night is upon us I quickly make up the dill dip and we just scoop up the dip and use the snow peas for a pleasurable crunch. We have been working on healthy versions and this is it! As always with my recipes, make them your very own, give them your own special memory, and look closely you will see that pea pod looking up at you too.
I was craving a light and savory pesto one summer night, but didn't want to run to the store for the only missing ingredient: pine nuts. This recipe is a combination of different pesto recipes. The lime juice livens this pesto up in an interesting way. I like to use this pesto for pasta, but it easily takes the place of any classic pesto. I also use it for a topping on eggplant sandwiches, a spread for wraps, or a dip for pizza or veggies.
