So it starts! By popular demand (ok really just my mom) I am starting this food blog. I have loved to cook since I can remember and have always tried to eat healthy. Many people think that eating healthy is boring and overwhelming. This is why you are reading my blog, because I want you to find that it can be yummy, satisfying, and simple... okay sometimes it requires some planning and work, but all good things do. FYI, the food Critic I refer to is my great Husband who will try everything I make.

Green Pea Hummus

This is ONE of my favorite snacks! It is so easy to make and the taste is amazing. Everyone that tastes it becomes a huge fan. It is good with rice chips, (especially the Boulder brand @ Coscto), carrots, cucumbers, peppers, etc.

Green Pea Hummus
2 cups peas, I use organic frozen peas
2 T fresh lemon juice
1/2 cloves garlic
1 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp salt
3 T tahini (the base for most hummus, it is ground up sesame seeds that looks like peanut butter)
1/4 c olive oil

1. Pour 2 cups of peas into a colander and rise with warm water
2. add peas to blender
3. add all other ingredients and blend well
