Fresh Pea Hummus #SundayFunday

 

Today the Sunday Funday group is celebrating Easter a little bit early...or rather inspiring you with Easter side dishes. Thanks to Stacy of Food Lust People Love, Sue of Palatable Pastime, Rebekah of Making Miracles, and Wendy of A Day in the Life on the Farm for coordinating this low-stress group. 

And, for this event, Wendy is hosting. Here's the line-up of our Easter side dishes from the #SundayFunday bloggers...

Fresh Pea Hummus

Pea hummus is the perfect addition to a table of starters alongside lots of cheese, charcuterie, nuts, and veggie crudités for Easter or any other Spring celebration.


The hardest part of this recipe is shelling the fresh peas.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups fresh shelled peas
  • 1/4 cups fresh cilantro
  • 1/4 cups fresh parsley
  • 4 Tablespoons tahini
  • 4 Tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground salt
  • veggie crudités for serving

Procedure
Place peas in pan and cover with water. Bring the pan to a boil. Cook until tender, approximately 2 to 3 minutes. Drain.


Peel and press your garlic cloves. In the bowl of a food processor or blender, pulse peas, cilantro, parsley, tahini, lemon juice, pressed garlic, and ground cumin until desired consistency. Season to taste with salt. Refrigerate until ready to serve.

That's a wrap on our Easter side dishes #SundayFunday event. Next week we'll be sharing interesting ham sandwiches. Stay tuned!

  1. I think that shelling peas is very soothing though especially if it is nice enough to be sitting on the porch while doing so.

  2. Shelling peas used to be one of our favorite summer activities. When they are super fresh, a lot would get eaten straight out of the pods. I miss those days. Love the vibrant green of your dish, Camilla!

Quick Pickled Red Onions and Radishes

If you've been reading my blog for even a short amount of time, you probably know how much I love to pickle things. I was just telling a friend you can pickle - with vinegar - or you can ferment - with salt - for similar delicious effect. The latter has digestive benefits and I love to do that, but when I need that pop of sour flavor quickly, I whip up quick pickles that are ready in as little as a day or two. I've Pickled Blueberries , Pickled Asparagus , Pickled Cranberries , Pickled Pumpkin , and even Pickled Chard Stems ! This I did last night for an upcoming recipe challenge that requires I include radishes. Ummmm...of course I'm pickling them! Ingredients  makes 1 quart jar radishes, trimmed and sliced organic red onions, peeled and thinly sliced (I used a mandolin slicer) 3/4 C vinegar (I used white distilled vinegar) 3/4 C water 3 T organic granulated sugar 1 T salt (I used some grey sea salt) 6 to 8 grinds of black pepper Proce

Hot Chocolate Agasajo-Style {Spice It Up!}

photo by D For my Spice It Up! kiddos this week, I was looking for an exotic drink to serve while we learned about saffron. I found a recipe from food historian Maricel Presilla that mimicked traditional Spanish hot chocolate from the 17th century where it was served at lavish receptions called agasajos . When I teach, I don't always get to shoot photos. Thankfully, D grabbed my camera and snapped a few. Ingredients serves 14-16 1 gallon organic whole milk 3 T dried rosebuds - or 2 t rosewater 2 t saffron threads, lightly crushed 3 T ground cinnamon 3 whole tepin chiles, crushed 2 vanilla beans, split lengthwise 1 C organic granulated sugar 1 lb. bittersweet chocolate Procedure In a large soup pot that can hold a gallon plus, combine milk, dried rosebuds (or rosewater, if you are using that), saffron threads, ground cinnamon, chiles, vanilla beans, and sugar and warm over medium heat till it steams. Whisk to dissolve sugar, then lower heat an

Jamaican Stew Peas #EattheWorld

  Here we are at November #EattheWorld event. What a year this has been! This challenge has been one that gave us some excuse for virtual travel as we've been sheltered-in-place with the coronavirus epidemic for most of 2020. So, we've been able to read about different parts of the world and create a dinner, or at least a dish, with that cuisine. This Eat the World project is spearheaded by Evelyne of  CulturEatz . Read more about  her challenge . This month, Evelyne had us heading to somewhere tropical: Jamaica. I have actually been to Jamaica, but it was almost thirty years ago...and it was just a jumping off point for the rest of our Caribbean exploration. I don't remember eating anything at all!
