1 clove garlic
5 ounces frozen peas (thawed out)
1 to 2 tablespoons crème fraiche (mascarpone or cream cheese is fine)
1 to 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan or pecorino
1/2 teaspoon dried mint
Special equipment: Food processor
Put thawed out peas into a food processor, or blender, and add the garlic, crème fraiche, cheese, and dried mint. Puree the peas until smooth and check the seasoning, adding salt if you need to.
Tip: Put the pureed peas into a bowl and warm. Spread it over crunchy toast and top it with a few bits of bacon.
