The addition of peas adds a warm, spring green flair to this classic hummus, which is completely plant-based.
- Place drained chickpeas, garlic cloves, lemon juice, tahini, olive oil, red pepper flakes and peas in the container of a blender.
- Add about half of the reserved chickpea juice. Process mixture until smooth, scraping down sides as needed. Add additional chickpea juice as needed to make a smooth, thick hummus.
- Chill until serving time. Serve with whole wheat pita, fresh veggies, and sandwiches.
- Makes about 2 1/2 cups of hummus (about 10 servings)
