I love adding a new twist to hummus. And this green pea hummus is just the thing. The addition of peas adds a warm, spring green flair to this classic hummus. Not to mention the addition of more fiber, protein, and phytochemicals found in those petite peas. Making your own homemade hummus is a cinch—just throw these 6 ingredients (not including pantry staples) into the blender or food processor, and whiz them up to make creamy, delicious hummus in no time.
What’s great is that you can store almost all of these items in your pantry or freezer, so that you can have these ingredients on hand whenever you want to make up a batch. You can also switch up the type of beans you choose for hummus. White beans work really well as a swap for chickpeas in this recipe.
You will always find a container of hummus—like this recipe—in my fridge. It’s a go to for veggie dip, a spread on sandwiches and wraps, an accompaniment for whole grain crackers or flatbread, a topping for salads, and a sauce for savory entrees, such as veggie balls, lentil patties, and falafels. When I serve hummus as a party dip, I like to flourish the top with a creative garnish. This photo above shows hummus served in hand-painted pottery bowls I picked up on my trip to Morocco, a drizzle of good EVOO, a sprinkle of smoked sea salt, and a decoration of dried edible flowers and herbs I picked up on my trip to South Tyrol, Italy last summer. So, go forth and be creative with your hummus!
