1/2 onion, diced
1 cup dried green split peas
2 cups water
2 garlic cloves, diced
1/4 cup olive oil
2 tbl lemon juice
1 tbl tahini
1/4 tsp ground cumin
1 tbl sesame oil
1 tsp salt
Additional salt and pepper to taste
On browning mode, saute onion in Instantpot for 5 minutes. Add garlic and saute for 2 minutes. Add salt and split peas and stir, add water. Cover and secure lid, set for 10 minutes on high manual mode.
When cooking time is over, let the pressure come down naturally for 15 minutes. Remove the lid, being careful of the steam.
Stir the peas, add lemon juice, olive oil, sesame oil, cumin and tahini and salt and pepper to taste. If you like your dip really smooth, pulse in a food processor until desired consistency. Garnish with additional sesame oil and sesame seeds. Serve with veggies or a sliced baguette.
