What Ingredients Are Needed?

Frozen Peas – This ingredient is perfect for a year round recipe. Simply defrost them in a bowl of warm water in the microwave for 30 second stints. 
Fresh Basil- This is essential to add loads of flavour. Fresh basil works with the peas perfectly. If you can’t find basil, try swapping for a few sprigs of fresh dill and parsley.
Lemon- This is an important ingredient to slice through the creaminess and give it a punch of acidity. 
Sunflower seeds – It’s so important to lightly toast the sunflower seeds in a dry pan without any oil. Just toss on a low heat until toasted as it transforms the flavour.
