If you want it very smooth, push it through a mesh strainer. A blender will give you a smoother product than a processor.

This may sound crazy, but I often like adding a touch of good Dijon mustard to my pea purée (peas, salt, a touch of olive oil). It balance out the sweetness nicely And gives it a little kick.

I also like to add a couple tablespoons of butter, too!

Hi @janeez26 -- are you using fresh or frozen peas? Puree them, freshly cooked (or make sure they're thawed-out if frozen), in a food processor (or blender if you don't have one) with some water (this helps thin it out a bit, use a little to start, and add more if you want it thinner), salt, pepper, some lemon juice, and any spices or seasonings you want to add.
