  • 1 Tbsp Olive Oil
  • ½ C Chopped White Onion
  • 2 C Shelled Green Peas or Frozen Peas
  • ¾ C Water
  • 2 Tbsp Tahini
  • 1 Tbsp Chopped Basil
  • 1 tsp Fresh Mint
  • ¼ C Sour Cream
  • TT Salt & Pepper


  1. Sweat the onion with the olive oil and reserve. Might even want to chill. Boil the water and add the peas for 3-5 minutes. Drain the peas and add to bowl of ice water, shock the peas to maintain color.  Strain them again. Take all ingredients and puree in a food processor. Puree for a short time for a chunky hummus or longer for a smoother hummus. Garnish with grilled flat bread bathed in butter and dusted with curry powder.
