Green Pea and Tofu Puree Vegan Recipe

Peas have lots of protein. Tofu does too. Why not combine them for that much more. 

This is a simple, quick recipe to execute. Still, it delivers on flavor and nutrition. 

Ingredients
1 10 ounce bag frozen peas, defrosted
1/2 package silken firm tofu
2 tbls olive oil
3 cloves garlic
1 jalapeno, deseeded and chunked
2 1/2 tsps salt
1 tsp oregano

I defrosted my peas in the microwave with a few tablespoons of water. I just used the bowl I planned to store the puree in when it was done. Loosely cover and nuke on high for 1 1/2 - 2 minutes. Just until the peas are barely thawed. 

If you want a gorgeous green color for your finished puree do not cook the frozen peas. Make sure to just defrost them. Also don't use canned peas. Fresh peas would work. Fresh peas would need to be blanched and shocked. 

Puree all ingredient until smooth.
