9 months ago

Minted Green Pea Hummus

Usually, hummus is made from mashed chickpeas, tahini (sesame seed paste), olive oil, salt, and garlic. For this recipe, we are changing the name of the game as we put a refreshing twist to this popular dipping sauce. It has ingredients that are easier to find and steps that makes it easier to prepare.

 

MINTED GREEN PEA HUMMUS

 

Makes 1 ½ cups

 

1 ½ cups Frozen green peas

1 clove Garlic, peeled

A handful of mint leaves

½ cup Olive oil

Juice of 1½ lemons

Salt and pepper, to season

Crudités or pita crisps, for serving

 

  1. Quickly blanch the peas in boiling water for about ten seconds and pour into a strainer. Rinse the peas under running water. Set aside and allow to cool completely.
  2. When cooled down, place the drained peas in a food processor with the peeled garlic clove and mint leaves. Give it a few pulses then purée everything while slowly adding in the olive oil.
  3. Add the lemon juice and pulse again. Scrape the sides of the processor to make sure everything is well-blended. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Serve with crudités and some pita crisps. You may adjust the consistency by adding more or less olive oil.
