Edamame Hummus

Edamame

Hummus has quickly become a healthy household favorite. And for good reason! This versatile dip has a mild flavor that many palates enjoy. It pairs well with a variety of ingredients and is rich in fiber, protein and healthy fats to keep you satisfied all day long. While classic hummus typically uses chickpeas as the base, we swapped in edamame for its beautiful green hue and added protein.

To make this emerald green hummus, grab your blender or food processor and throw in deshelled edamame, tahini, water, lemon juice, garlic cloves, olive oil and spices (we love cumin, onion powder and black pepper!). Blend or process the ingredients together until smooth and pour your finished hummus into a bowl. Serve with chopped non-starchy veggies, sliced whole grain pita bread, whole wheat crackers and more!

Pro tip: Hummus makes a delicious high protein salad topper in place of a salad dressing. Turn your bowl of greens into a filling feast with this flavorful spread.
