Every once in a while aren't you in the mood for something just a little different? Perusing the Internet I found this. I think i think I have to try it. Not sure what the curmudgeon will think... he does like hummus and he likes peas, but hum. I'll let you know...
Ingredients For pita toasts
1 large garlic clove, smashed with flat side of a knife
2 tablespoons olive oil
4 (6- to 7-inch) pita loaves with pockets (not split)
2 cups shelled fresh peas (2 to 2 1/2 pounds in pods)
3/4 teaspoon cumin seeds, toasted and cooled
1/2 cup fresh cilantro leaves
1 to 2 garlic cloves
1/4 cup well-stirred tahini (Middle Eastern sesame paste)
1/2 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
Make pita toasts:
Preheat oven to 375°F.
Combine garlic and oil in a small cup and let stand while oven heats.
Brush garlic oil on 1 side of each pita. Arrange pitas, oiled sides up, in 1 layer on a large baking sheet. Bake in middle of oven until toasted, 12 to 15 minutes (pitas will not be completely crisp). Stack pitas while still warm and cut each into 6 triangles (24 total). Cool, then transfer to a plate or basket to serve with hummus.
Make hummus while pitas toast:
Cook peas in a saucepan of boiling salted water until just tender, 6 to 10 minutes. Drain and cool.
Coarsely grind cumin seeds in an electric coffee/spice grinder or crush with a mortar and pestle. Transfer to a food processor. Add cilantro and garlic (to taste) and finely chop.
Add peas, tahini, lemon juice, salt, and pepper and purée
