Purple Hull Pea Hummus

After putting up about 16 pounds of purple hull peas last week we had just a cup or so left over. Not enough to freeze or eat with dinner but too much to just toss. What to do? Make hummus!

Hummus is a Middle Eastern dip made with chickpeas. Substituting purple hull peas for the chickpeas gives you the same creamy dip with a Southern twist.

In the food processor toss your cooked peas, garlic, lemon juice, tahini paste, olive oil and salt. You can certainly find a variety of recipes for hummus but it’s really just all to taste and the consistency you prefer.

It’s not much to look at, but it’s yummy!
