How to find / list all views with specific string?

I found the equivalent for the stored procedure:
SELECT ROUTINE_NAME, ROUTINE_DEFINITION
    FROM INFORMATION_SCHEMA.ROUTINES
    WHERE ROUTINE_DEFINITION LIKE '%foo%'


This is exactly what I am looking for but this only shows procedures... I want to have a list of the views...

Thank you

You can query Views and Procedures at the same time

select distinct object_name(o.id) as [Name], case o.xtype
 when 'P' then 'Procedure'
 when 'FN' then 'Scalar function'
 when 'IF' then 'Inline function'
 when 'TF' then 'Table valued function'
 when 'V' then 'View'
 end as [Object Type]
from syscomments i
 inner join sysobjects o on o.id = i.id
where o.xtype in ('P','FN','IF','TF','V')
 and text like '%foo%'
