This Black Eyed Pea Hummus is a quick dip to make that is healthy, vegan, gluten free and packed with lots of flavor. Great served with chips or veggies.
My inspiration for making this came about from a Simple Black Eyed Pea Salad that I made which turned out excellent.
When making that I had extra black eyed peas to use so I thought I would try them as a hummus.
I used a bag of dried black eyed peas and cooked them but you could easily buy them already prepared. I just like to make dried beans when I have time since they generally taste fresher.
Black Eyed Peas traditionally are something people like to make on New Years Day. I guess it’s supposed to bring you luck somehow.
Even though I’d love to believe that, ultimately I think we make our own fate. Even though I think a lot of things are out of our control I still think we decide where we are going to end up.
But anyway, for some reason I had a craving for some black eyed peas and it lead to this Black Eyed Pea Hummus which I couldn’t be happier with.
So if you find yourself reading this, I hope you’ll think about black eyed peas in a new light. It’s all about trying new things and being okay if you fail at something. You never know what you’re capable of unless you try.
done with my words of wisdom for today. If you’re feeling inspired why not give this Black Eyed Pea Hummus a try or whatever else you’ve been thinking about tackling 🙂
