1/2 cup dried yellow split peas
2 1/2 cups water
1/2 teaspoon lemon zest
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon lemon juice

PREPARATION

  • Heat olive oil in a medium saucepan.   Add onion and sauté until soft, about 3 minutes.   Add garlic and cook one more minute.

  • Remove from heat and add lemon zest, salt and lemon juice.
  • Set aside to cool to room temperature.
  • Puree in a food processor, blender or with a potato masher.   Taste for seasonings.   Add more salt if necessary and hot sauce if you like a kick.
  • Put in serving bowl and drizzle with olive oil.
  • Serve with pita chips and veggies, or spread on toasted bread.

Prep time, 15 minutes; cook time, 30 – 45 minutes; makes about 1 1/2 cups.
