    Recipe 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.
