I am dreaming of green! Not just because St. Patrick's Day is just around the corner. Little green shoots are starting to pop out of the ground. I can see the beginnings of my daffodils making their appearance. What a welcome sight those signs of green can be! Those signs mean the end of winter isn't too far off, flowers will bloom and my garden can get started. I just love the signs of Spring! Since we are talking green, check out this twist on traditional hummus.
Mint Pea Hummus has such a fresh, Spring flavor! You will love the change from traditional hummus. Besides, wouldn't it be great for St. Patrick's Day?
I left mine kind of chunky, but you can make it as smooth as you desire. Just serve with crackers or pita chips.
1 cup frozen peas
1/3 cup tahini
1/4 cup fresh mint leaves, chopped
pinch of salt
Cook frozen peas for 2 minutes in a pot of water. Strain peas from the water. In a food processor. puree peas, tahini, chopped mint leaves and salt. Add vegetable broth until you reach the desired consistency (less vegetable broth for thicker hummus).
You know there is a party going on!
