Split peas are a perfect legume to make into a dip because they have a natural sweetness that creates a complex nutty flavor. The extra virgin olive oil adds a layer of silkiness and depth that is amazing and great for your heart. Make sure you use a high quality olive oil for maximum flavor and healing properties. Whip this up in minutes for an impromptu gathering or a weekend movie night with the family. You’ll never have to buy fatty ranch dips or salty pre-made bean dips again when you add this simple recipe to your repertoire.
Try different combinations of flavors in this easy dip like curry powder and turmeric, thyme and a splash of lemon juice or rosemary and roasted garlic.
