Black Eyed Pea Hummus

This unique hummus has extra flavor from the black eyed peas, cilantro, and lime.  It makes a great dip for raw veggies, but you should also try it integrated into a sandwich or wrap, as a base to roasted vegetables or a protein of your choice, or in a hummus bowl. Makes 8 servings. Skill level: beginner.


  • 4 whole peeled garlic cloves
  • 4 cups black eyed peas, cooked
  • 3 Tbsp. tahini
  • 1 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • 1 tsp. ground cumin
  • 3 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp. salt (or to taste)


  • Add everything except for the oil and salt to a food processor.
  • Puree/pulse until smooth. Pause to scrape down sides as needed.
  • With food processor turned on, slowly add olive oil to the mixture.
  • Add salt and any other additional seasoning to taste.
