Looking for a delicious, low fat, healthy Superbowl treat that you can eat in abundance and feel satiated? Try this easy gem of a recipe by Carol Barnett.

2½ cups frozen green peas, thawed

1 clove garlic, chopped

2 tbsp fresh lime juice (1/2 or 1 lime, squeezed)

½ teaspoon ground cumin

½ cup chopped fresh cilantro*

¼ tsp salt

½ stick celery (optional)

1 tomato, chopped (optional)

2 scallions, chopped, or some chopped Vidalia onion (optional)

⅛ teaspoon hot sauce (optional)

Place all ingredients in food processor and process until well blended, but don’t purée completely, leave a little texture. Serve as a dip with crudités (carrots, celery, peppers). If you serve with crackers, find a brand with no added oil or sugar (like Finn Crisp), or make your own by gently warming oil-free pita or tortilla wedges in the oven.

*If you are someone who doesn’t like cilantro, substitute Italian or flat-leaf parsley, or simply leave the cilantro out.

Note: The accompanying picture shows Caraway Finn Crisp. One tbsp caraway seed (much more than you would get in a few crackers) contains 22 calories of which 8.8 are fat calories, so there is a negligible amount of fat in this product. You can choose any variety of Finn Crisp except the Sesame Rounds during Jumpstart.
