Green Pea and Garbanzo Bean Dip - Thug Kitchen

Think all green dips must be guacamole? Grab some peas and broaden your goddamn dip horizon with a batch of this green goodness- it’s packed with protein and a fuckload of fiber. Peas aren't the sexiest veggie in the store but they are cheap as shit and available year-round on the freezer aisle. Let these little green bastards help you be the envy of everyone else's stagnant snacking.

2 cups green peas*
1 cup cooked garbanzo beans
¼ cup chopped fresh basil
¼ cup chopped green onions
2 cloves garlic, minced
3 tablespoons lemon juice
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
¼ teaspoon salt

Throw everything in a food processor or blender and run that shit until the dip is kinda smooth. Taste and add more lemon juice or whatever the fuck you think it is missing. Serve at room temperature or let it chill in the fridge for a bit. Best served the day it’s made.


Serve it with some cut up veggies or bread, whatever dip delivery device you’ve got. It’s also a kickass sandwich spread.


* These can be fresh, blanched green peas or defrosted frozen peas. We used frozen and it tasted legit.
