Recipe: Mint Sweet Pea Puree

This image is no longer available

When we take spoon after spoon of this delicious purée we are reminded of King John II of England. It’s reported that the pea-obsessed monarch died after eating seven bowls of the little green legumes. The lesson we carry with us is to stop at six.


4 cups frozen peas
1/2 cup Kraft Philadelphia Whipped Cream Cheese
1/4 cup butter, room temperature
2 tbsp chopped fresh mint
1 tsp kosher salt


1) In a medium saucepan bring salted water to a boil over high heat. Add frozen peas, reduce heat to low and simmer for 5 minutes until tender. Drain well. Transfer peas to a food processor. Add cream cheese, butter, mint and salt. Purée until smooth, 15-20 seconds. Remove from processor and serve warm.

Serves 6-8
