HS Easter Potluck Pinterest Party

HS Easter Potluck Pinterest Party

Pinterest Party

Fun fun fun

For most major holidays, HelloSociety has an office potluck. For Easter they want to do something a little more special and involve us Pinterest influencers. We are all over the world and can't be there in person so this really is a fun idea! Here are my contributions for the Pinterest Party. I prepared two dips and truffles. All are easy to make! 

Enjoy!~

Green Peas Hummus Dip


Ingredients

- 18 ounces (500 gr) fresh peas (frozen or canned is ok too)
 - 3 cloves of garlic
- 3 tbsp. tahine paste

- 1 tbsp cumin
- 1 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil

If you're going to use canned peas you can go straight ahead, if not you will have to boil your peas a little to soften them up.

1 -  Add all ingredients (but leave a few peas out so they can be used for the garnish) to your blender.
2 - Arrange your hummus dip in a bowl . Make sure to leave some space in the middle so you can add olive oil.
3 - After adding the olive oil, place the remaining peas in the middle and garnish with cumin and chili powder.
