Green Pea Hummus

Green Pea Hummus

Sumac grows in abundance throughout the Mediterranean, and its dried, ground berries are a fruity and astringent spice widely used in Middle Eastern cooking. If you can't find sumac, substitute 1/4 teaspoon grated lemon rind. You may need to add up to a tablespoon of water if the mixture is too thick to process smoothly. Serve with pita wedges.
