1 pound bag frozen peas, defrosted
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons fresh lemon or lime juice
1/4 bunch fresh cilantro
1 jalepeno pepper, seeded
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 red onion, finely chopped (optional)
Combine the peas, olive oil, juice, cilantro, jalepeno, cumin and salt in the bowl of a food processor fitted with the metal blade or a blender. Process until the ingredients are smooth. Taste for balance of flavors. Add salt, acid, or oil as needed. If using, stir in the onion. Refrigerate until ready to use.
