Grilled Asparagus w/ Minted Pea Puree

Peas were one of those foods I always loved, especially peas cooked in the french style, you know with the chopped ham and lettuce. Yep I could have eaten bowls of them at a time. But as you know, I know don’t do meat, (am trying real hard, to stick with this new change in my diet)

At this time of year I’m obsessed with Peas and Asparagus I’ve developed my own recipe and is so simple and tastes so good… You guys need to give it a try!

I’ve never made this recipe using fresh peas, but I think it should work. Add any healthy fat instead of the avocado. Feel free to add your favourite herbs and spices.

This pea puree is ready in 15 minutes and is really easy to make. I’m obsessed with this amazing recipe. It’s the perfect snack, lunch or whenever you want to eat it

  • ¼ cup water
  • ½ avocado
