Sweet Pea Hummus
"Hummus is the perfect appetizer because it's light, delicious and versatile; you can make many variations and dip just about anything in it. I love adding sweet green peas to my hummus because they add an extra citrusy sweetness and creaminess to the dish. You can even add green curry to it to give it a Thai flare. It's a lighter, healthier twist on an old favorite," says Steve Lindner, Executive Chef and Founder of ZoneManhattan.com.
