Your New Snack Option: Healthy Green Pea Hummus

I am a happy camper when I have an assortment of homemade, ready-to-eat, healthy snacks on hand in the refrigerator and pantry. If I am especially ravenous, it’s reassuring that I can (1) reach for any number of options, (2) devour one or more of the options, and (3) feel satisfied and empowered no matter what I choose. 

Having such options on hand would never happen if the recipes are not quick and easy. The quicker and easier, the better! 

A perfect example: my super-simple,  and healthy, Skinny Green Pea Hummus.

Healthy Highlights of Skinny Green Pea Hummus

The recipe is:

  • Oil-free
  • Tahini-free
  • Vegan
  • Made with 5 ingredients
  • Ready in 5 minutes
  • Gluten-Free

This hummus also happens to be very frugal and totally scrumptious!

How to Make Skinny Green Pea Hummus

To make the hummus, you’ll need the following humble ingredients:

  1. 1 15-ounce can chickpeas
  2. 1 and 1/2 cups of frozen green peas
  3. 2 to 3 cloves garlic
  4. a medium-size lemon (you’ll use both the zest and juice)
  5. 1/2 cup of full-fat canned coconut milk

Coconut Milk for Flavor & Creaminess

The coconut milk adds creaminess and flavor (in place of oil and tahini). If, for any reason, you cannot eat coconut, just replace the coconut milk with another nondairy milk. It will not be as creamy, but it will still be delicious.

Place all of the ingredients in a blender or food processor and whirl away! I prefer a high speed blender for hummus (I like hummus that is super creamy), but you can use what you have. Just be sure to scrape down the sides of the bowl multiple times so that all is blended and smooth.

Transfer the hummus to a bowl and season to taste with fine sea salt. You can add more lemon juice, too, and if you like a bit of heat (I do!), add some sriracha (or the hot sauce or pepper your prefer).

That’s it! The hummus will keep for at least a week in the refrigerator. The creamy, fresh, vibrant flavor is wonderful on everything and anything.

Including straight off of the spoon!

Happy snacking!
