Sunflower Black-eyed-pea Hummus

The black-eyed-peas were cooked overnight in a slow cooker; otherwise, this recipe too would be raw. I'm experimenting with protein and fiber-rich foods like beans, but still want to maintain a very high percentage of raw in my diet. This is pretty good. One thing about black-eyed-peas is that they can be eaten straight out of the crock pot without any seasonings, including salt. There's just something satisfying about their flavor that seems complete. Adding a just a touch of cumin and turmeric does bring out their flavor a lot though.

Sunflower Seed and Black-eyed-pea Hummus
1 cup sunflower seeds, soaked and drained
1 cup cooked black-eyed-peas with 1/2+ cup bean broth
2-3 large garlic cloves
1-2 tablespoons olive oil (optional)
sea salt

The hummus spread on the raw,dehydrated lentil cracker (this one shaped like a personal pizza).
My personal pizza - raw lentil cracker for the crust, hummus, cilantro pesto, fresh parsley and chopped tomatoes.
