Purim will soon be upon us in a few short weeks. It is said that Queen Esther, the heroine of the Purim story, ate vegetables and legumes to avoid eating non-Kosher food. To honor her, we enjoy eating dishes prepared with legumes and vegetables. Here is the perfect “noshable”, or appetizer, to start the festive meal. It is delicious, easy and is delicately infused with the flavor of peas .
1 8 oz. container classic flavor hummus
2 4 oz. containers pureed peas (baby food)
3-4 tsp. lemon juice
Sprinkle of garlic powder (opt.)
½ tsp. lemon zest
1/8-1/4 tsp. salt
1 Tbls. chopped scallions for garnish
Mix all ingredients together. Garnish with chopped scallions.
- Add an additional 4 oz. container peas if you like a stronger pea flavor.
- Serve with sweet potato multi-grain chips or your favorite chips or pita crisps
