**UPDATED RECIPE -2/2024**

Straight from the AC Art Of Food Test Kitchen Thursday lineup, this deliciously savory, garlicky-creamy, nod to the ancestors is a versatile spread/dip that pairs perfectly with raw veggies or your favorite crunchy cracker.

The black eyed pea alone is rich in fiber, vitamins, and minerals and is one of the top two beans containing the highest levels of iron- sharing this title with the traditional bean to this recipe, the chickpea.
