After discovering the joys of using freeze-dried corn in baked goods, I had to give some other dehydrated veggies a shot as well.

Green peas and pistachios are a classic and truly outstanding combination, and light and crisp biscotti seemed like as good a vehicle as any to showcase them. Brilliant green and delicious, the outcome was even better than I could have hoped for. These delicious little snacks are lightly sweet and perfectly highlight the nutty, creaminess of pistachios alongside the fresh and sweet hints of peas.

Step 1: You'll Need. . .

  • 1/4 cup butter, softened
  • 3/8 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • Large pinch of salt
  • Splash of vanilla extract
  • 1 cup freeze-dried peas
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1/3 cup shelled pistachios
  • White chocolate for dipping (optional)

  • Food processor or clean coffee/spice mill (or mortar and pestle) to grind the dried peas
  • Mixing bowl
  • Measuring cups and spoons
  • Sheet pan lined with parchment paper
  • Serrated knife
I just stumbled on this.....this looks scrumptious
These look yummers!
I think you are on to something good with this dried veg thing you are doing.
Thanks so much! It's been really interesting to see what kinds of things are possible and the flavors that veggies impart.
