Green Pea Hummus

Yields1 Serving

 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

Put 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.


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