One thing we love about our vegetables actually BEING the dip, rather than what you are using to dip, is that kids like it!  Because our hummus if made with green peas, we like to  use pita crisps, tortilla chips, or crackers, and we know we are still getting our greens!

Green peas are high in protective antioxidants, like catechin and epicatechin.  They are full of vitamin K, fiber, protein, and most interesting of all, contain omega 3 fats in the form of alpha-linolenic acid.  (source)  So, with these healthy little peas, we decided to blend it up with our chickpeas to make some green pea hummus.  The kids loved the color, and it’s perfect for a healthy St. Patricks Day snack!

A question. Can frozen peas be used when the fresh ones aren’t in season?
Thanks!

do you drain the chickpeas? I didn’t see it mentioned but usually do when I make hummus.
