My mother came to visit us from Arizona recently and announced during her visit she was now a vegetarian.   Now on the days she ate chicken she was a Poulitarian.  Anyway, we had to modify some of our meals to accommodate our visitor, but she also made many of her own meals for us during her stay.  One of my favorites is what I called Pea Hummus.  I am not sure what the correct name is for it, but the name has kind of stuck in our household.  We make it as an appetizer and serve it with Lentil Chips.  It really tastes great and is easy to make as well.


1 Bag Frozen Peas

1 Cup Grated Parmesan Cheese

1/2 Cup Olive Oil

1 Clove Garlic (I love garlic so use a little more in mine.)


Salt and Pepper to taste

Defrost the peas.  Put the peas, Parmesan cheese, garlic, mint, salt and pepper  in the food processor.  The amount of mint, salt and pepper depends on your personal preference.  Pulse to get it mixed together.  Then while pulsing drizzle in the olive oil.  You may want to add more or less depending on how you like the consistency.   Garnish with some mint leaves and serve right away or refrigerator for a while before serving.
