I substituted frozen spinach for peas (as I ran out), and it was still absolutely delicious and creamy! Great on toast topped with chilli flakes/dukkah for lunch. Thanks for the great flavour combo 😊

Love the sub, Darshana! So glad you enjoyed the dip 😃

This was okay. I loved the idea of using edamame and peas, but I think I was expecting a different flavor profile.

I just made a batch for my dinner guests tonight and forgot the garlic! It still tastes sensational. I also had to substitute fresh lemon verbena leaves for lemon juice. Still tastes amazing. Thank you for this recipe and the opportunity to make better food for myself, family and friends, and to impress them all too!!

A lovely variation on the original hummus recipe!! I love peas, and they pair so well with the mint leaves. I tried this hummus as a condiment for a cooked meal instead of the regular carbohydrate choices (like potatoes), which was a success. I prepared 11 servings, which were sufficient for lunch during four days. Amazing! However, I have to be careful with the water; I think that the hummus will be less liquid using half the amount of water. I guess peas contain more water (also from the cooking process) than chickpeas

We're so glad you enjoyed the dip, Louise! We do find peas a bit more watery than chickpeas as well 🙂
