Green Pea Hummus

16 Jan

I received free samples of Progresso Cooking Stock mentioned in this post at no cost. By posting this recipe, I am entering a recipe contest sponsored by Progresso Cooking Stock and am eligible to win prizes associated with the contest. I was not compensated for my time.

I’m all for new dishes, but sometimes a familiar, comforting appetizer is the right way to go. Well, maybe with a twist 😉 Progresso asked us to create comfort dishes with their cooking stocks, and this hummus is exactly that! It’s quick, easy, and is super healthy, with the addition of frozen green peas, and swapping in vegetable stock for the oil. This low-fat, high-protein dip is a perfect addition to your game-day parties, dinner with friends, or just to enjoy with some raw veggies while you cook dinner.

Not sold on using peas in hummus? It’s not as crazy as using them in a protein smoothie! Oh, give it a try. You’ll be pleasantly surprised!

    I’ve been loving the recipe redux so much this month. This sounds easy and delicious and a great way to reduce some of the oil and fat in hummus.

    What a fun idea! I have a huge bag for split green peas I need to use – this would be perfect!
