Creamy Green Pea Dip

In addition to the Asian Cabbage Salad, Homemade Pita, and Edamame Dip I made this Creamy Green Pea Dip.

I loved the smooth, slightly sweet taste of this dip.  It gets a little kick from the jalapeno, but isn’t spicy.  This would also make an excellent cold pasta sauce.  With the addition of silken tofu it adds some extra protein to your meal.  And as my mother always told me growing up, the peas will make your eyelashes curly!
