Yield: 6

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup dry split peas
  • 2 1/2 cups purified water
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 garlic clove minced
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoons tahini paste
  • sea salt optional to taste

Directions:

  • Place split peas, water, and bay leaf in a medium pan. Bring to a boil. Cover, reduce the heat, and simmer for 40 minutes or until the peas are tender and liquid is absorbed, stirring occasionally. Remove bay leaf.
  • In a food processor place cooked peas, olive oil, garlic, and tahini. Process until well blended.
  • Add lemon juice and salt.  Process until smooth and creamy.

Notes:

This is a fabulous-tasting alternative to regular hummus, which is made with garbanzo beans. Raw veggies and hummus are one of my favorite snacks, but I prefer not to overindulge with too many legumes, as they can irritate the intestinal lining. Peas are a starchy vegetable and do not have the same irritating effect.
