Black-Eyed Pea Dip

I’d love to call this hummus but really it's not. Whatever it is, it is truly very yummy and not so bad for you either. It would be great on a sandwich too.

Ingredients:

  • Fresh Black-eyed Peas
  • Garlic
  • Green Onion
  • Olive Oil
  • Salt and Pepper
  • Dash of Cumin
  • Sprinkle of Paprika
  • 1 tsp Red Pepper flakes
  • 6 ozs of plain homemade Yogurt (can substitute with store bought if you must)

Directions:

  • Boil Peas until they are tender.
  • Combine all ingredients, except the yogurt, in a food process and blend until creamy.
  • Add more oil if you think it is still too thick.
  • When it's the consistency you like, add the yogurt and blend until fully combined.

I'm always looking for new ways of eating beans. This sounds great! The problem with my Turkish family is that they are not into dipping. But as soon as I have some Lithuanians at home, I'll give it a go!

You almost had me until I saw the yogurt at the end. I'm going vegan for the month so I guess black bean dip will have to wait.

Aren't you the creative gal using black eyed peas - Something I would never have thought of. Sounds really delicious.

that's a nice, thick, hearty dip, requiring superior chips, am i right? great use for black-eyed peas--they're much too often ignored. :)

Barbara said...
