Recipe 53: Pea hummus

While trawling through photos for the big Kitchen post I discovered a recipe that I had forgotten about! So in the manner of a bonus track on a CD… here is recipe 53: pea hummus. I love hummus and I adore peas so when I came across this recipe I had to try it out!

Making it: simple. Cook peas, add tahini and blitz.

Eating it: strange. It was kind of good, but not 100% convinced. I think there was too much tahini so that strong taste overpowered the peas.

Next time: I’d make normal hummus – I’ve refined my version of Elisa Beynon’s hummus so I put a bit less tahini in and it is fantastic!

So… as this is NYE, and my goal for the year was to cook at least 50 new recipes. I’ve just flicked through Nigella’s Kitchen which has been my main cookbook for the last couple of months to see what I have cooked but not blogged and the amazing news is that I have cooked 12 recipes from Kitchen which brings the grand total up to 52 recipes which means I have reached my target! I sadly don’t have time today to write-up a full posting for all of the missing recipes… so instead I am going to do a speed-review for what I have cooked.
