Zingy and Spicy Split Pea Hummus
This is an easy recipe you can make ahead and enjoy it for a week! I’ve made this without a food processor before and the taste was still good, it was just a little chunkier – as expected.
- 1/8 t. tumeric
- 1/2 t. crushed red peppers
- 3/4 t. cumin
- 2 t. garlic (or 2 fresh cloves)
- 1/8 c. lemon
- 1/2 c. olive oil
- 1 cup dried split peas
Rinse the split peas, then fill sauce pot with water – just over the peas – and boil until soft.
Combine all ingredients in a food processor (or blender) or blend until desired consistency. You can easily mash the peas if you don’t have a food processor. Salt to taste. Sprinkle crushed red peppers for a little decoration. I wouldn’t use too much more lemon. I used 1/4 cup and luckily I had more split peas to add in.
