Green pea lemon hummus

My son is not a big fan of meat, chicken, fish nor cheese. So I have to be crative and come up with ways to get some protein in his growing body. That is how this hummus recipe was created. Since this was for my 2 year old, I chose to omit garlic, but feel free to add as many cloves as you can handle. Garbanzo beans are amazing, there is just so many incredibly yummy ways to put together a tasty hummus. This is only one way…

Special equipment: food processor

  • 1 can of garbanzo beans
  • 1/2 cup semi frozen green peas
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1/2tsp lemon zest
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp ground cumin
  • pepper to taste
  1. Process all the ingredients in a food processor until the hummus has a consistency you like. You can thin it with more olive oil or a bit of water.
  2. Season and serve.
