Adding green peas to a traditional recipe for Middle Eastern hummus creates rich color and a bit of a sweeter taste. Serve with Arabic pita bread.

  • 1 cup frozen peas, thawed
  • 2 tablespoons tahini (sesame seed paste)
  • 1/4 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 2 garlic cloves, peeled
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • sea salt to taste
  • 3-1/2 tablespoons olive oil


  1. Place the chickpeas, peas, tahini, yogurt, garlic, lemon juice, cumin and salt in a food processor and pulse until the mixture is smooth.
  2. With the motor running, slowly pour the oil down the processor flute and blend until combined.
  3. Add some sea salt to taste and then transfer to a dipping bowl. Serve immediately.
