Green Pea Hummus

Green Pea Hummus


April 10, 2009

When adding green peas to hummus you could use leftovers or quickly cook them, but today I threw them in and let them thaw in the food processor before adding everything else, and it worked just fine.

  • Makes: Makes about 2 cups.


1 19 oz. (540 mL) can chick peas (garbanzo beans), rinsed and drained

1/2-1 cup frozen peas, thawed

2 Tbsp. tahini (sesame seed paste) or peanut butter

1/4 cup plain yogurt

2 garlic cloves, peeled

juice of 1 lemon (or 2-3 Tbsp.)

1/2 tsp. cumin

salt to taste

2-4 Tbsp. olive oil


1Put the chick peas, peas, tahini, yogurt, garlic, lemon juice, cumin and salt in the bowl of a food processor and pulse until pureed. With the motor running, drizzle in the olive oil until it’s smooth and has the texture you want. If it’s too thick, add a little extra oil, yogurt or water.

2Taste and adjust seasonings (salt, pepper, lemon juice, tahini) to your taste. Serve with fresh or toasted pita chips and/or fresh vegetables.
