  1. In a small pot heat your vegetable stock over high heat until boiling. Once boiling, add in your yellow split peas and heat until boiling again. Then reduce the heat to low, cover, and cook for 40-45 minutes. Take off heat and let cool slightly before transferring to a blender.
  2. Measure out two cups of cooked yellow split peas and add them to a blender, along with all other hummus ingredients. Blend on high until smooth.
  3. Use your hummus as a spread on a sandwich, make a crudite platter with it, or just eat it by the spoonful!
