DIARY OF A CHEF AT HOME

My 4 year old son LOVES peas! I recently made this dish and he went crazy for it. Peas have a natural sweetness to them, coupled with a bit of tang from lemon, a touch of spicy freshness from the mint and a hit of umami from the parmesan cheese, this simple and quick side dish is a winner!
I recently served this puree over a bed of Basic Cauliflower Rice Pilaf with a piece of Spiced Molasses Salmon served on top. It was a quick and easy dinner to prepare and looked restaurant fancy!

1 red onion, diced
2 garlic cloves, minced
