Nothing brings the fresh feeling of summer quite like a fresh and crisp Sugar Snap Pea, it’s green and light and bursts with a tangy spray in every bite, much like a radish or turnip. That hydrating and nutrient dense crunch– so refreshing!
Pate is the perfect medium for a small handful of peas, and makes a great fridge snack, as you can combine it with nearly anything else in your fridge or pantry like crackers or celery sticks. Best of all, the bright bright green of the peas makes an excellent color note against a bright pink of a radish, making it an excellent smile-inducing finger food for an outdoor garden party.

This zesty aioli is oil free, and arguably sugar free (optionally salt free), and can be used in place of mayonnaise, vegannaise, or even cooking oil.

Bonus, the blackstrap molasses gives you a ton of natural vitamins and minerals, the apple cider vinegar the probiotics you need for improved digestions, the nutritional yeast is fortified with B12, and the turmeric supplies you with a daily anti-inflammatory boost!
