Minted Pea Hummus

Hummus is a staple in my refrigerator.  I can use it as a dip for veggies or spread it on crackers for a snack, or use it as a sandwich spread or pizza topper.  I like to make my hummus according to what is in season as well.  I know chickpea hummus is classic, and I love it, but for Spring, I made a minted pea hummus that was delicious, and refreshing. Peas actually contain quite a bit of protein as well, so this is a substantial snack.  It is super easy to make as well, just throw all of the ingredients in the blender, blend until smooth and voila!  Delicious beautifully colored nutritious hummus!
