Sweet Pea Feta Parmesan Dip
Happy Hump Day, friends! You will have to excuse me as I am totally exhausted from driving from Montreal all the way to Florida these past few days! Not to mention all that traveling we did in Cleveland! I will share some details of our trip later this week, but while I try to get settled in, I have a really special treat for you all!

So, after you check out the delicious recipe Cassie prepared for today, go check out some of her other recipes! Take it away, Cassie!
Hi Eat, Drink, Love readers! I am Cassie and I blog about my love for life and food at Bake Your Day. I have loved watching this space grow, Stephanie has some creative ideas, and she always seems to put a great healthy spin on her recipes.
I decided to take a somewhat healthy spin on the recipe for today with a dip. I love dips. Actually, I love all snack foods. But let’s face it: snacks usually don’t have many health benefits to them. This one, however, is sort of sneaky because the base of the dip is sweet peas. I added lots of garlic and feta cheese, along with lemon juice and fresh sage leaves. It is crisp, light and almost refreshing for a summer party!
I have never actually been a fan of peas but for some reason I have had the idea of a pea dip in my head for quite some time. For some reason I was just convinced that pureed peas would somehow be different than their whole form. And I was right, I adored this dip. The peas paired perfectly with the cheeses and garlic and the texture was very pleasing. Just don’t tell anyone it’s made with peas!
