      I'm really impressed with this simple recipe. The peas didn't break down as much as I had expected but I'm sure that's my fault. I made a quarter of the recipe which only ask for 1/4 cup of peas, that's not really enough for the processor to get a good grip on.The flavors are great, a real change from the usual and will welcome at any season. Mine was 20 mins, start to finish. Made for PAC, Fall '09.
