Recipe - Pea Hummus

Easy pea-sy recipe right here! Looking for something outside of the typical hummus you see made with garbanzo beans? You can make it with peas which have a sweeter flavor as well as an interesting color that can be good for themed parties or just to change things up a bit. The recipe is simple, as is any base hummus, so you can prep this quickly for a snack or gathering.

Step 1: Ingredients (yields ~1 cup of hummus)
  • 1 cup fresh or thawed frozen peas (save some for presentation)
  • 2 Tbsps tahini
  • 2 Tbsps lemon juice
  • 1-2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 tsp ground coriander

Step 2: Making hummus
This is how easy the recipe is. Mince garlic finely. Place everything into a small food processor and puree until smooth and fully incorporated. Ta-da! Serve with cracker or chip of choice. I also grated some Parmesan on top with cracked rainbow peppercorns and a few whole peas for presentation.
