Spring Pea Hummus

1 Tbsp olive oil
1/2 cup chopped onion
2 cups shelled peas, fresh or frozen
3/4 cup water
2 Tbsp tahini
3 Tbsp chopped fresh mint (spearmint)
2 Tbsp sour cream
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
Salt to taste

Heat the olive oil in a small pot over medium heat. Add the chopped onion and sauté until soft and translucent, but not browned, about 4-5 minutes.

Add the peas and the water, cover and bring to a boil. Let this cook 5 minutes, then drain the peas and onions.

Put the peas and onions into the bowl of a food processor and add all the remaining ingredients. Pulse until you have a rough purée. Serve chilled.

Serves 4-6 as an appetizer.

About Delicious Goodies

Love life, the outdoors, photography, reading, cooking, baking, spending time with family. Just a girl next door in what I call paradise - Southern California. By no means a professional cook, I do enjoy cooking, trying new recipes and sharing with others. I hope you enjoy what you find here! I have one Vegan in the family, so we are always making two meals, rather fun, and it allows us to try new ideas. When I was in Middle School I use to help my Grandmother make cookie canisters - every year at Christmas we would make an assortment of cookies, breads, candy and put them in a wrapped canister and give them as gifts. I still enjoy this idea, although haven't done it that much - at least not an assortment of goodies. I think this year will be the year I go back to that idea and see how everyone likes it. Have a wonderful week, and spread kindness everywhere you go!
