Pea and Basil Dip

1 1/2 cups frozen peas

1/2 cup basil

1/4cup chives

1tsp lime juice

150 mls low fat greek or natural yoghurt unsweetened

black pepper to taste

1/2 tsp chopped garlic

Place all ingrediants in to a food processor and pulse untill mostly pureed, a little bit of chunkyness is fine and it gives it a bit of texture.

If  its a bit thick add a little bit of water , dont add too much though or you will end up with a tasty cold soup.

the peas dont require cooking, when you have made the dip just let it sit on the bench for a little bit as it will be very cold, garnish with a sprig of basil
