Summer is the perfect time for snacking and light meals with the heavy heat. Freshly picked sweet sugar snap peas with classic chickpeas, fresh garlic and lemon make the most refreshing hummus to serve before any dish, or even call it a meal.

Sweet Pea Hummus:

1  1/2 c. green peas – shucked

1  16 oz. can chickpeas – drained

2 cloves garlic

1 lemon – juiced

2 T. good olive oil

1/2  t. salt

1/2  t. freshly cracked black pepper

In a food processor, pulse sweet green peas, chickpeas and garlic.  Add in freshly squeezed lemon juice, olive oil, salt and pepper. Pulse until combined and smooth. Remove from processor and serve with fresh veggies, crackers or corn tortillas.
