This is a great appetizer or snack for a big party. We keep it on hand in the fridge for to spread on bagels on Sunday morning.
INGREDIENTS (for 1 servings):
- 1 egg
- 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
- 1 large onion, chopped
- 2 cloves garlic, chopped
- 20 thin wheat crackers
- 1/2 cup walnuts
- 1 (15 ounce) can peas, drained
- 1/2 teaspoon seasoning salt
- salt and pepper to taste
Place egg in a small saucepan, and cover with cold water. Bring water to a boil, and immediately remove from heat. Cover, and let egg stand in hot water for 10 to 12 minutes. Remove from hot water, cool, peel and chop.
Heat oil in a skillet over low heat, and add chopped onion. Cook, stirring occasionally, until brown and tender. Add chopped garlic, and saute for 1 to 2 minutes. Remove the mixture from the skillet, and set aside to cool.
In a blender or food processor, finely chop wheat crackers and walnuts. Mix in peas, seasoning salt and sauteed onion mixture. Add the egg, and blend to a fine paste, adding water or oil if necessary to attain desired consistency. Season with salt and pepper.
