1 package thawed, raw, frozen peas

Handful of basil

1 or 2 handfuls unsalted roasted or raw pumpkin seeds

½ tsp sea salt

¼ cup water

In a blender or Vitamix, add all ingredients and blend until smooth. If peas need a bit more water for blending, add a tablespoon of water at a time until reaching the desired consistency. Pour into bowl and serve immediately with an array of dippers, including organic healthy chips and sliced vegies, as well as outside-the-box options like bok choy, squash or peppers.
