I am a big fan of Bigga dried peas (Mushy Peas). Could one use mushy peas in this recipe?
Hi, Jim! We haven’t tried it with bigga peas, but it sounds like they would work just fine. The flavor would obviously be different, but I think it would still make good hummus. Enjoy!
Chickpeas are a legume too!
I made this last Wednesday for company and it was a big hit. I think I need to make another batch to have in the house this week. Thinking it would be delicious on a turkey sandwich.
This would make a great base for a soup, too!Thanks!
This recipe and the links to the other recipes using mint are perfect timing. I just trimmed our peppermint and chocolate mint plants back this morning and was wondering what else to make. I noticed the jelly and the agua fresca call for spearmint. Can I substitute the mint I have for the spearmint?
I will clarify in the recipe that what is suggested is spearmint, not peppermint. In my opinion peppermint has a very different flavor, that isn’t necessarily compatible with the same recipes as spearmint. That said, I have no idea how peppermint will taste with the peas. If you try it, please let us know how it turns out! ~Elise
why use water then pour it off as you would lose flavor and vitamins. How about 1/4 cup water and simmer it away? I will try it this way and report back.
I think you find with your method you will overcook the peas and the result will be an army green hummus rather a vibrant fresh amazing green colour :)
I make something very similar with edamame beans, tofu, pistachios and herbs. I love adding peas too. So springy and fresh, even vegan to (without the sour cream in your case).
This recipe reminds me a bit of a spring pea soup I had last week as a resort. The chef said she uses mint and basil to brighten the flavors. I hate split pea soup, but the spring pea soup was so delicious, and such a beautiful color that I devoured it before it even occurred to me that it was a “pea soup”- this spring pea hummus is a must try now that I realize the difference between split pea and spring (fresh) pea. too bad the peas won’t be ready for another two months where I live (7000 ft elevation in SW Colorado).
Hi, Tracy. We probably know each other on FB. I live in Cortez.
