Green Pea Hummus

Green Pea Hummus is a simple to make dip that is bursting with nutrients. If you’re having a party or just a few people over then this is a great dish to make, especially served with some toasted pitta bread. It’s so quick to make that you can put it together fresh every time with absolutely minimal fuss.

To create this recipe you will only need a handful of ingredients and most of you will already have a bag of frozen peas in the freezer ready to be used.

So, what you will need is:

  • 500g or 1lb 2oz frozen peas
  • 2 tablespoons of tahini
  • Juice of 1-2 lemons
  • 1 tablespoon of extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2-3 garlic cloves, peeled
  • 1 teaspoon of ground cumin
  • 1/2 bunch fresh coriander
  • Sea salt and pepper, to taste
  • A pinch of cayenne pepper, to serve


Firstly take the 500 grams of frozen peas and boil them in a pan of water for approximately five minutes. Once they have boiled you should drain them and give them a quick rinse under some cold water.

You can then place all of them in your vitamix or food processor whilst also adding the tahini, the juice of the lemons, a tablespoon of extra-virgin olive oil, the peeled garlic cloves and the cumin and coriander.

Once you have blended everything together you may find that you have to add two or three tablespoons of cold water to thin it out slightly, however this isn’t always the case so if it already looks great, then leave it!

Now you can mix in some sea salt and black pepper to taste and serve in a bowl. The final touch to this tasty dish is to sprinkle cayenne pepper over the top and it’s then ready to be eaten! The colour and appearance of this dip is much more appealing then a normal hummus dip and is sure to get any guests asking for the recipe.

Healthy Eating

Green peas are amongst the most nutritious vegetables and are full of a huge variety of anti-oxidants, vitamins and minerals.

They are also low in calories and contain absolutely no cholesterol. Peas are an especially great source of vitamin C which is essential for helping your body fight infections and illness. Vitamin K is also found in abundance in green peas which is necessary for maintaining healthy bones and ensuring your blood clots as it should.
