Wasabi Pea Hummus

IMG_1958I use green peas as the base for a lot of hummus-type dips. This time I added wasabi paste (from a tube), rice vinegar, sesame oil, chili garlic paste and salt to steamed green peas. About 30 seconds in the food processor, and you have a really yummy dip for veggies, pita chips, or an interesting addition to a sandwich. I garnished mine with a few whole peas and some wasabi powder (though I wish I’d had some actual crunchy wasabi peas on hand).

  • 2 cups frozen green peas, boiled for 30 seconds or defrosted in the microwave
  • 2 tablespoons wasabi paste
  • 2 tablespoons prepared horseradish (from a jar)
  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon chili garlic paste
  • salt to taste

Blend to a chunky paste, adding water or olive oil to thin if necessary. Taste and add more spicy, salt, sour, etc as needed.
