pea, feta, and mint hummus

Untitled

i have to apologize to you: it’s taken me over two months to post this recipe, although it’s one of the best dips i’ve ever tried. a friend made this for a bbq waaaaay back in may, and i promptly asked her for the recipe (after eating a ridiculous amount of it, of course).

then i made the dip for a family bbq in june and discovered that it’s not only absolutely delicious, but it’s also incredibly quick and simple to make.

you just defrost some peas, throw them in a food processor with mint, olive oil, feta, garlic, and lemon juice, whirl them in said food processor and enjoy! yeah, this recipe is that simple. so please accept my apologies for the delayed post, and go make this dip!!

    […] (And even tho I LOVED the peas and mint and feta recipe the response from friends were – “umm, where’d you get this recipe, Erika?” “From Caro, she’s on my team – she’s so amazing, has the best veggie recipes, she’s canadian, from quebec, but her dad’s from Cameroon I think and she lives in Joburg where she’s married to a South African – but she speaks spanish!” “Oh, she’s from quebec, that explains it.  I don’t know what it is but they just love peas.”)  ????????????  (and since I know you all will want the recipe, I think this is closest… but am sure Caro’s is tastier – http://www.eclaire.name/2012/07/pea-feta-mint-hummus/) […]
