Blackeyed Pea Hummus

Blackeyed Pea Hummus
Some of our fondest 2014 memories involve Simple Abundance cooking classes and our ongoing partnership with the Atlanta Community Food Bank. In 2014, Atlanta chefs taught cooking classes hosted at The Cook's Warehouse that raised over $23,000 for the food bank. Every December, our owner Mary Moore and Sherlock's Decatur wine specialist Don Hackett teach a holiday themed class, this year's class was about "NEW New Year's Day Traditions". The recipe below was featured and is a great snack to share as you kick off 2015!
