A twist on the classic hummus, with lucky Black-eyed peas in place of the chickpeas. A wonderful appetizer or snack thats gluten-free, dairy-free and veganJump to Recipe
In the south, bringing in the New Year means having Black-eyed peas and Collard Greens. A tradition in the African American community to bring in good luck and prosperity
We wanted to put a new twist on the old classic with Black-eyed pea Hummus, Cornbread crackers and crispy collard green chips.
SERVE THIS VEGAN HUMMUS WITH?
You can buy canned black-eyed peas to make preparation quick and easy. Bonus this recipe is great to repurpose leftover black-eyed peas too.
Substituting chickpeas with Black Eyed Peas gives the classic dip a very smokey flavor you will not regret. Black-eyed peas are a legume and are available dried and frozen but for this recipe to keep it simple we recommend buying the canned already cooked peas. The peas have a earthy, savory smoky flavor. Chickpea's taste are much milder and you'll see them in a lot of vegan recipes substituting for things like eggs and tuna because of this. One cup of peas has a little more protein than chickpeas 14g compared to 11g but less fiber 6g compared to 9g.
