Black Eyed Pea Hummus
Servings: 4
  • 15 ounce can or 1 1/2 cups cooked black eyed peas
  • 1-2 garlic cloves
  • 2 tablespoons tahini
  • 1/2 teaspoon of berbere
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Olive oil, toasted sesame seeds, paprika, chili powder, or berbere, and fresh parsley for topping
  1. Add the peas to a food processor and pulse for a few seconds. 

  2. Then add the garlic, tahini, berbere, lemon juice, salt, and 2 ice cubes, and continue pulsing for 3-4 minutes until you get a smooth, creamy texture and the ice is completely worked in. (The ice cubes will help to make the hummus creamier.)

  3. Adjust for salt, as needed. Top with olive oil, toasted sesame seeds, and berbere for topping. You can also add fresh parsley for a finishing touch! Enjoy with pita or toast.

Recipe Notes

If you don't have berbere, you can replace with ground paprika or chili powder
