Soba Noodles with Mint Pea Pesto
My dear friend, and incredible chef, Agi from Just a Pinch created this awesome recipe for my Karma Chow Ultimate Cookbook and it’s great for Meatless Monday. It’s loaded with flavor, fiber and nutrition! She brilliantly uses peas in place of basil for this pesto, with a touch of mint. The natural sweetness of the peas shines through and gives this dish a special salubrious sparkle.
Cook noodles according to package directions and set aside. In the mean time, in a food processor bowl fitted with the s-blade, process the peas, garlic, pine nuts, mint leaves, salt and pepper and lime juice until combined. Remove lid to scrape down sides. With processor running, slowly pour the oil in the top until the mixture is all combined into a pesto consistency. Toss with noodles using tongs. Serve warm or cold.
