Green Pea Hummus

Nothing says Spring like bright green sweet peas. It is almost May and weather in San Diego is amazing. It's the perfect time for this lightened up Green Pea Hummus. The possibilities are endless. Sweet green peas join forces with a splash of lemon, a hint of garlic, a drizzle of tahini and a pinch of cumin, to make this light and creamy dip. Or even better, you could spread it on a sandwich. Basically you can dip, dunk or spread it.

Although hummus is traditionally made with chickpeas, all the other ingredients are consistent and the  beautiful Mediterranean flavors shine through. This is an easy delicious alternative that takes mere minutes to whip up.
