I’m back with yet another Hummus dish, this time Green Peas Hummus !! This is purely a vegetable hummus unlike my earlier ones.
I’ll be honest, I’m not someone who’s particularly fond of green peas, rather as a child I would run away from them. Now I have this delish way of eating these lovely beads. The Green Peas Hummus has a lovely texture and a vibrant fresh colour and very quick to make.
Like other hummus, this too is brilliant and healthy in wraps, on crostinis or to just have with crackers.
Green Peas Hummus
1 cup fresh or frozen Green Peas
A handful of green cilantro
2 cloves of Garlic
1 tbsp Tahini
1 tbsp Lemon Juice
1/4 tsp Cumin Powder
Salt to taste
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1. Boil the peas in some salted water. (This should take about 8-10 minutes). Do not cover the pan or the peas will become dull in colour. Drain and cool the peas under cold water. Strain and keep aside.
2. In a food processor, blitz the boiled peas, tahini, garlic, cilantro, lemon juice, cumin powder and salt. Blitz till you get a coarse paste.
3. Add a little olive oil and blitz some more. You should now get a creamy texture.
4. Transfer in the serving dish, dribble some olive oil if you like and serve.
This stays happy in a refrigerator for up to a week.
Happy Cooking !!
