Sugar snaps, english peas and sweet peas have shown up in abundance at the Santa Fe Farmer’s Market in the past 3 weeks. While most often these sweet peas are consumed on our back from the market because they are so crisp and fresh…those who made it to the kitchen counter inspired me to create an old favorite of mine. Sweet Pea Hummus.
While most people are well versed with the traditional Chickpea Hummus recipe, Sweet Pea Hummus adds a subtle sweetness to the mix that will have you hooked after your first taste. It is great as a dip for vegetables, breads and crackers, or you can spread it on sandwich bread and join it with sprouts and grilled veggies. There is a freshness to this hummus that keeps you feeling light in the heat of the summer months.Print
