Something For Georgia Prime

Postby Jogeephus » Sun Jul 27, 2014 11:43 am

My children like Humus and I had a pile of various cowpeas and thought I'd try making humus from our peas rather than chickpeas. Sounded reasonable. Turned out great and it might be something you might like to try.

Brilliant idea, Jo! That stuff has unlimited versatility. Put it on a biscuit with a slice of tomato. Use it as a dip for cracklin cornbread. Heat a piece of pita bread up on a skillet, put the humus on like mayonnaise and top with fried eggplant. Use it instead of cheese on nachos. The possibilities are endless. This could start a culinary revolution. Crumble up bacon in it and eat for breakfast instead of oatmeal. Great work, man! :D

I thought you might like it. Its very good. I figured a pea was a pea so why not give it a go. I just boiled the peas till done. Chilled with water then ground them in food processor and used a regular humus recipe. I sortof thought I'd get some color with it but didn't. Just looked the same as chick peas only maybe not as creamy. Am going to try black eyed peas next.

Black eyed peas ought to work, they taste better than chickpeas to begin with.

Nothing to it really. I just used a recipe from the net but rather than using chick peas I used cooked cowpeas. I just figured a pea was a pea and wanted to make use with what I had. It turned out good.

Nice place to eat it. Your peas will make it better than the store bought I'm sure.

Good idea. The dollar store here had them in bulk for sale last week. May need to pick some up.
