As a self-proclaimed hummus queen, I could not let the new year come and go without giving hummus a try with black-eyed peas instead of chickpeas. Surprisingly, I think I like this even better than a traditional chickpea hummus. With the addition of apple cider vinegar and juicy pomegranate arils, the earthy flavor of the black-eyed peas is balanced out with a slightly sweet tang. A uniquely delicious and very addicting hummus to say the least!

If you happen to be hosting a New Year’s party or you need a dish to bring to a potluck New Year’s gathering, this black-eyed pea hummus would be an interesting crowd-pleasing dip. Also, it might even help you stick with diet goals in the midst of other party foods. Just don’t forget the Food Should Taste Good Multigrain Tortilla Chips! They’re the perfect complement to black-eyed pea hummus.

Actually, they’re the perfect compliment to pretty much everything from chili to dip. Food Should Taste Good chips and crackers are my favorite! Food Should Taste Good products are wonderfully delish, but they are also crafted using quality ingredients. All Food Should Taste Good chips and crackers are non-GMO, certified Kosher and certified gluten-free. Many of the chip varieties are also certified vegan, including the Multigrain Tortilla Chips.

Black-Eyed Pea Hummus

Festive black-eyed pea hummus, just in time to welcome in the New Year with a healthy dose of good luck! (vegan, gluten-free, dairy-free)

Ingredients

  • 15 ounce black-eyed peas, rinsed & drained*
  • 3 tablespoons tahini**
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1/2 lemon, juiced
  • 2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2-1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil + 1 tablespoon more for drizzling over the top
  • 1/2-1 cup parsley + more for garnish
  • 1/4-1/3 cup pomegranate arils for serving, the seeds from a pomegranate fruit***
  • Food Should Taste Good Multigrain Tortilla Chips and raw veggies for serving

Instructions 

  • Mix all ingredients (except 1 tablespoon olive oil and pomegranate arils) in a food processor. Pulse and scrape sides as needed, until hummus is smooth.
  • Taste and add any additional ingredients as desired. Top with a drizzle of olive oil, pomegranate arils and additional chopped parsley. Enjoy with any of Food Should Taste Good chips. I especially love the Multigrain Tortilla Chips with this hummus!

Notes

*Feel free to use 3 1/2 cups steamed or cooked black-eyed peas.
**Tahini is ground sesame seed and can be found in the grocery store near other nut and seed butters.
***Save time and buy seeds already taken from the fruit, sold in the produce aisle. You can find them at many grocery stores, including Costco and Trader Joe's.
