My sister introduced me to this very quick, easy and yummy hummus recipe. And it’s raw! 

I use the organic frozen peas from Picard or Naturalia. Peas are generally frozen shortly after picking (but some brands may be blanched prior to freezing.) Frozen products are still considered raw: although a small amount of enzymes are lost in the process, it’s much less than when compared to heating. Perl Amande‘s tahini is a great raw choice.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups fresh or frozen green peas
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
  • 3 tablespoons tahini
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 garlic clove

Preparation
If using frozen peas, thaw at room temperature. Place all ingredients in a food processor, and process until smooth. Transfer mixture to a bowl or plate. Drizzle with olive oil. Serve with crudités and crackers. Flax crackers are my fave: recipe for them coming soon!
