Hummus Pea Dip

Hummus Green Pea Dip

In the subtropics there are still lovely balmy days and warm evenings throughout winter that warrant a tasty snack in the form of a dip such as this.

Ingredients:

  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • ½ cup chopped red onion
  • 2 cups shelled peas fresh preferably, frozen will suffice
  • ¾ water
  • 2 Tbsp of Tahini
  • 3 Tbsp of chopped mint
  • 2 Tbsp of sour cream
  • 1 clove of garlic crushed
  • ½ cup of chickpeas (tinned)
  • salt and pepper to taste

To Make:

Heat oil in a small saucepan over a medium heat. Add chopped onion and lightly sauté for about 4 minutes.

Add peas and water, cover and bring to the boil. Cook for 5 minutes from this point, then, drain the peas and the onions.

Place the peas, onion and crushed garlic clove into a food processor, along with all the remaining ingredients. Pulse until you have a rough puree.

Serve chilled with your favourite dip accompaniments.
