Method

00:30
 
Pour boiling water over the peas and allow to stand for 2 minutes. Rinse immediately with ice cold water and set aside.
Heat the butter in a large frying pan and saute the leeks until softened. Add stock and simmer for 5 minutes.
Place the peas, leeks, stock, zest and cream into a food processor and blend until your desired consistency is reached (I personally like a bit of texture with a few bits of whole peas in the mix).
Season to taste.
Chill in the fridge or serve warm drizzled with Parmesan infused oil and garnished with shards of bacon and Parmesan crumble.

Toppings:
Preheat the oven to 200°C.

Place rashers of bacon onto a roasting tray with a rack and roast for +- 20 minutes or until super crispy.
Pat Parmesan down onto a greased baking tray and pop into the oven for +- minutes until golden and crispy. Scrape off the baking tray and break into bits.
