Split Pea Hummus

Split Pea Hummus
Yields 2 cups


  • 2/3 cup dried split peas
  • 2 cups vegetable broth
  • ¼ cup tahini
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • juice and zest of 1 lemon
  • 1 tablespoon freshly ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt plus more to taste
  • 1/4 cup good quality olive oil
  • Chopped veggies and nachos for serving


  1. Combine the split peas and broth in a medium saucepan over high heat. Bring to a boil, stir, then reduce heat and  cover. Simmer until the split peas are very tender (almost mushy) and most of the liquid is absorbed, about 30 minutes.
  2. Transfer the cooked split peas to a food processor. Add in the tahini, garlic, lemon juice and zest, cumin, and salt. Pulse until very smooth - you may need to scrape down the sides occasionally.
  3. With the food processor running, stream in the olive oil until just combined. Taste for seasoning, adding more salt if necessary. Serve with crackers, veggies or nachos for dipping.
