Okay, it's really black eyed pea dip but if I had entitled it as such would you have opened this post? Most of our appetizers and dips are less than healthy, I personally have tried some healthier options and had come to believe that "healthy dip" meant shredded cardboard, no longer. This could be described as something akin to hummus, however, I don't care for garbanzo beans so this is a lovely option.
For my gluten free friends I used Nut Thin crackers, this would be good on matzoh too.
1 15oz. can black eyed peas, rinsed and drained
1 large clove garlic
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
2 green onions or 2 tablespoons minced yellow onion
3 tablespoons olive oil, more or less
1-2 tablespoons lemon juice
2 teaspoons jalapeno
1/2 teaspoon cumin
salt/pepper to taste
4-6 dashes hot sauce (like Frank's)
Scrape into a serving bowl.
Serve with crackers or pita bread.
