Purple Hull Pea Dip!

Last week, our CSA box contained purple hull peas. Our lovely partner and CSA member Chelsea Stockdale created this delicious recipe and we excited to share it with you!

Here’s what you’ll need:
1 TBS Dried or Fresh Parsley
1 cup purple hull peas
1 lemon
Water
Salt & Pepper to taste

*Serve with a side of pita chips, crackers or veggies!* *High powered blender or food processor and griddle

Total Time: 50 minutes
Total Prep Time: 5 minutes
Total Cook Time: 40-45 minutes (slow cooking the peas)

Step 1) Boil a few cups of water in a saucepan. You’ll need enough water to cover your peas. Add in salt and pepper here. Add your peas to the boiling water and lower the heat to simmer. You’ll want to simmer them for about 45 minutes or until tender.

Step 2) Drain your peas and add them to the blender.

Step 3) Charbroil your lemons by cutting them in half and sitting them on a griddle for about 5 minutes. You don’t have to do this step, totally optional! The flavor is just a tiny bit smokey which is delicious here, but not 100% necessary. Make it your own!

Step 4) Combine your peas in the blender with your parsley and your squeezed lemon juice. Blend until smooth and creamy.
Step 5) Serve and Enjoy! This dip is delicious with pita chips, crackers or chips!

Now how easy was that? Super simple, right?
