Happy New Year Hummus (Eat your black-eyed peas!)

I cannot believe it is an end of a decade.   In fact, until recently it did not occur to me that we were really at a milestone New Year’s.

Here’s wishing each of you a very Happy New Year and all the best in 2020!

Start the year out right with a healthy hummus.  This version is full of roasted red pepper and black-eyed peas.

Eat your black-eyed peas for good luck in 2020!

Happy New Year Hummus


How many days of good luck will you have after eating this hummus? An infinite number!


  • 1 (15 oz.) can black-eyed peas, drained
  • 1/4 c. lemon juice
  • 1/4 c. tahini
  • 1 glove garlic
  • 1 T. olive oil (plus more if needed)
  • 1/2 t. ground cumin
  • 3-4 slice roasted red pepper (jarred)
  • salt and pepper as needed


  1. Place all ingredients in a food processor EXCEPT the red pepper.  Process until smooth and creamy, scraping down the bowl as needed.
  2. If the mixture is too thick, add 2 to 3 tablespoons of water until it’s the desired consistency.
  3. Add the red pepper and pulse a few times.   (I like to leave a few chunks of pepper.)  Taste for salt and adjust as needed. Garnish with more red pepper strips.  Serve with pita chips, crackers or crostini.
  4.  Store homemade hummus in an airtight container and refrigerate up to one week.

Happy New Year 2020!
