Confession time: I love snacking! I constantly have the “munchies” and am always looking for small things to eat that have that satisfying crunch. Vegetables usually do the trick, but – and I think I can speak for many – I want to dip them in something! This is why I’m always coming up with different dips and spreads to use with my snacks or meals. I love to blend different flavors and create a really healthy spread. I know what goes into them and can control the fat content. Thankfully, making them healthy does nothing with the flavor because this pea hummus is simply delicious! Simple and fresh, it is perfect for spring and can be served with crackers, veggies, or tossed with pasta as a pesto would be!
That’s it! This is seriously so simple and tastes so fresh. I love serving and eating this, especially in the spring. Happy munching, snacking, or anything in between!

Watch how to make this pea hummus
- 5 cups frozen peas
- ¼ cup tahini
- ¼ cup fresh tarragon leaves
- 2 lemons juiced
- 1-2 tsp salt
- Bring 3 quarts of water to a boil in a large kettle. Once boiling, add the frozen peas. Cover and let sit for 1-3 minutes until the peas are just tender. Drain immediately and rinse with cold water. Continue to let drain.5 cups frozen peas
- Add tarragon leaves to a food processor followed by drained peas, lemon juice, tahini, and salt. Process until smooth. Scrape down the sides of the processor and mix again until all lumps are combined and everything is evenly incorporated.¼ cup tahini, ¼ cup fresh tarragon leaves, 2 lemons, 1-2 tsp salt
- If the spread is too thick, while the processor is running, add a few tablespoons of olive oil. This will thin the spread to the consistency desired.
- Season with more salt if needed. Peas are fairly sweet and can take more seasoning than you may think at first!
This sounds amazing! Can’t wait to try!
