This simple bright green dip is such a fun way to celebrate peas! Little chefs can add the peas to the food processor or blender, scoop in the avocado, and measure the other simple ingredients in the recipe. The hummus takes a little while to get smooth, so don’t worry if you check on it and return to blending a couple of times. Do a countdown and put on some music and dance while the hummus is blending away. This makes about 4 cups of dip, so if you want to make a smaller batch, just cut all the measurements in half.
