  • 1 pound fresh or frozen green peas
  • 1/3 cup tahini
  • 1/4 cup fresh mint leaves

Bring 3 inches of water to a boil in a large saucepan. Add peas, and cook until just tender (about 2 minutes); drain and cool slightly. In a food processor, combine cooked peas, tahini, and mint leaves; purée until chunky-smooth. Add a pinch of kosher salt, and serve with flatbread crackers broken into thirds.

  • Yield: 30 servings (serving size: 1 tablespoon hummus with 1/3 flatbread cracker)

Good to Know

Hummus is usually made from chickpeas, but this version uses green peas, which are packed with tummy-slimming Resistant Starch. Using whole-grain crackers will add a touch of fiber.
