Next to my pumpkin hummus, this might be my favorite hummus recipe ever! It has such an interesting, earthy flavor, and the color is off-the-charts beautiful! My green-loving three year old devoured this stuff. And I know what you’re thinking, hummus isn’t a meal! Well it is if you do it my way. Load up a plate with breads, veggies, and other yummy crudité, and it’s a fun snacky meal.

Split Pea Hummus

Yield: 2 cups
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 30 minutes
Total Time: 40 minutes

This earthy Split Pea Hummus has a gorgeous green hue. Load up a plate with breads, veggies, and other yummy crudité, and it's a fun snacky meal or party dish.

Ingredients

  • 2/3 cup dried green split peas
  • 2 cups vegetable broth
  • 1/4 cup tahini
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • Juice and zest of 1 lemon (about 2 tablespoons juice and 1 teaspoon zest)
  • 1 tablespoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, plus more to taste
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • Crackers, veggies, pita, for serving

Instructions

  1. Combine the split peas and broth in a medium saucepan over high heat. Bring to a boil, stir, then reduce heat, cover, and simmer until the split peas are very tender (almost mushy) and most of the liquid is absorbed, about 30 minutes.
  2. Transfer the cooked split peas to a food processor. Add in the tahini, garlic, lemon juice and zest, cumin, and salt. Pulse until very smooth—you may need to scrape down the sides occasionally.
  3. With the food processor running, stream in the olive oil, and continue to run until just combined. Taste for seasoning, adding more salt if necessary, then serve with crackers, veggies, and pita, for dipping.

Notes

  • If you make this hummus right after cooking the split peas, you’ll end up with warm hummus, which is actually quite nice! But if you prefer, you can let it cool completely before serving.
