Recipe: Spring Pea Bissara

 

Our favorite pea recipes are the ones that keep the vegetable's freshness in tact, so we're happy to have gotten our hands on Ana Sortun's vibrant bissara, a North African dip, just as pea season is taking off. Sortun pulses straight-from-the-pod peas with assorted herbs, onions, walnut oil, and smoky Aleppo pepper, resulting in a delicious spread that's at home on pita or on crackers. Get the recipe here

Made with blended frozen watermelon and served with a mound of crushed ice in its center, this dish will cool you to the core. Get the recipe here
