This green pea dip is made with just 10 ingredients:

  • Green peas: Green peas are the center of this dip. Use frozen green peas and let them thaw before preparing the recipe.
  • Tahini: Tahini helps to create a creamy consistency. This nut-free spread is made from sesame seeds.
  • Olive oil: I recommend using a high-quality extra virgin olive oil for the best flavor.
  • Lemon juice: Fresh lemon juice or store bought lemon juice can be used.
  • Garlic: We’ll use a couple of garlic cloves, but you can add more if you’re a big garlic lover.
  • Parsley: Fresh parsley lightens the dip and adds some freshness to the overall flavor.
  • Seasoning: In particular, we’ll use onion powder, salt, and black pepper.
  • Water: Add more or less water to achieve your desired consistency. More water creates a thinner spread while less water creates a thick + chunky dip.

One of the best things about this recipe is how easy peasy it is! No pun intended 😉 Start by allowing the frozen green peas to completely thaw. If you’re in a rush, you can microwave them for 2 minutes. Be sure they cool before moving forward with the recipe.

Combine all ingredients in a food processor or a blender. Process the ingredients until a thick paste is formed. Add water, 2 tbsp at a time, until you achieve a consistency that looks good to you. I like mine on the thinner side, so I typically use 3-4 tbsp water.

Dip: Enjoy it with sliced vegetables, like carrots, celery, bell peppers, and cucumber. Also, use it as a dip for crackers and warm pita bread.

Spread: Spread it on sandwiches, toast, veggie burgers, bagels, and homemade pizzas.

Dressing: Toss it in your favorite salad or pasta for a light and refreshing meal.

Use frozen green peas. I do not recommend canned peas. Stick with frozen green peas and let them thaw before beginning the recipe. If you’re in a rush, you can microwave the green peas for 2 minutes instead of waiting for them to thaw. If you do this, allow the peas to cool down to room temperature afterwards.

Make it thick or thin. Alter the consistency by adding more or less water to the food processor. More water will create a thin consistency, while less water will keep it thick and chunky.

Store in the refrigerator. Saving for later? Transfer the green pea hummus to a lidded mason jar or airtight container. Keep it in the refrigerator. It will last for 5-7 days.
