Black Eyed Pea Hummus

Growing up my Mom always made Black Eyed Peas for New Years.  She said eating them gave us good luck and the more we ate, the luckier we'd be!  This riff on Hummus transforms Black Eyed Peas to a rich, creamy spread worthy of much good fortune to come!  I like how the raw garlic, black pepper and sesame oil enhance the subtle nuttiness of the humble pea.

1 1/2 Cups Cooked Black Eyes Peas
2 Cloves Fresh Garlic
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/4 teaspoon white sesame oil
2/3 Cup Olive or Canola Oil (or a combination of the two oils)
Dash of Bragg's Liquid Aminos
Juice of 1 Lemon

Blend all ingredients except oil at high speed in food processor, scraping down sides as needed.  Drizzle oil in while machine is running.  Serve immediately with fresh veggies, chips and crackers.  Refrigerate unused portion for up to 1 week.  Good Food Luck!  Enjoy!
