Fresh Pea Humus

Today in Turkey there is a very important football match between two very strong ( maybe the strongest) football teams - Beşiktaş ( our favourite) and Fenerbahçe ( our least favourite). As my hubby is very into football, I already know our evening plans. Football Fiesta next to our huge TV!!! So I decided to make some snacks. One of them is pea humus - a little spring twist on a traditional chickpea humus. Hope you'll enjoy it too as it has such a fresh flavour!

What we need:

1 water glass of boiled fresh peas ( 220ml)
0,5 water glass of boiled chickpeas
2 tbps of chopped parsley
1 tbsp of yogurt
a bunch of chopped spring onions
3 tbsp of lemon juice
1 teaspoon of cumin
3 tbsp of olive oil
salt
bread for serving

What we have to do:

1. Peas and chickpeas put into a food processor and blend until it turns into small chunks. Then add parsley, spring onion, olive oil, lemon juice. Blend again. Finally add salt, cumin and yogurt. Blend again.
2. Transfer pea humus into a serving bowl. Garnish with parsley and serve with fresh or toasted bread. Enjoy!!!

  3. I just saw GIaida make this on Food Network, but she didn't add the chickpeas, which sound perfect. Thanks for stopping by, and please come again. BTW, the angel food cake is easy--five minutes (if you buy the cake).
