Ring in the new year with some “good luck” black-eyed peas just served up a little differently.

This hummus gives regular black-eyed peas a twist by turning them into a smoky hummus. I threw in some Greek yogurt to add a little more creaminess and added a twist of flavor by using cashew butter. Tahini or a little creamy peanut butter could also work. But, the cashew butter gave it a more robust flavor that I was looking for.

This hummus is incredibly easy to make; just throw it in a blender and you’re good to go.
