Black Eyed Pea Hummus - Thug Kitchen

From award-winning author Michael W. Twitty (The Cooking Gene) this is a southern take on traditional hummus. Black eyed peas are synonymous with southern cooking because they’re versatile and loaded with fiber, protein, and iron. Make a classy crudité or spread this on a sandwich or just grab a fuckin spoon and enjoy. 

Listen to this Forked Up episode HERE

15 ounce can black eyed peas, rinsed and drained
¼ cup extra virgin olive oil
⅓ cup tahini*
⅓ cup fresh lemon juice
1 ½ teaspoons sal
4 garlic cloves, chopped
1 teaspoon smoked paprika
½ teaspoon cumin
½ teaspoon coriander**
½ teaspoon chili powder
1 teaspoon brown or turbinado sugar
1 teaspoon hot sauce
2 teaspoons minced parsley

Throw everything but the parsley in a food processor and run that shit until everything is smooth and mixed together. Taste and add more spice, hot sauce or whatever you think it needs. Serve with the parsley sprinkled over and a drizzle of olive oil on the top.

* Tahini is basically peanut butter but made with sesame seeds. It's gonna be near the falafel mix or peanut butter at the store.

** Don’t have coriander? Just use more cumin.
