Here at Birds Eye we love our peas, and for good reason! They’re low in sugar and saturated fat, high in fibre and vitamin C, and very versatile when it comes to cooking.

So forget everything you know about traditional pesto and try this recipe instead. By simply adding garden peas into the mix, this pesto recipe is chock-full of nutrients. Plus, if you don’t like (or can’t eat) nuts, then this is the prefect alternative.

Once it’s ready you can simply have it with pasta, spread it on a slice of bread or even have it as a dip for delicious chicken bites!
