Black Eyed Pea Hummus

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

  • 1 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • 1 tsp. ground cumin
  • 3 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp. salt (or to taste)


  1. Add everything except for the oil and salt to a food processor.

  2. Puree/pulse until smooth. Pause to scrape down sides as needed.

  3. With food processor turned on, slowly add olive oil to the mixture.

  4. Add salt and any other additional seasoning to taste.
