Set some water and salt to boil in a heavy bottomed saucepan. When it comes to a rolling boil, add in the shelled peas.

Allow the water to return to a rolling boil and cook the peas for 3 minutes. Remove the pan from heat, strain the peas and reserve about a cup of the boiling water.
Rinse the peas under running cold water and let them drain.
In a blender, place the peas, mint leaves, garlic and a few tbsp of the reserved boiling liquid. Whiz until coarsely mashed.

Add the tahini, lemon juice and enough water to make a coarse puree. Add the water sparingly so that the dip doesn’t become too runny.
Taste and adjust salt as needed. Blend until almost smooth but retains some texture.
