I know nothing about football. But I welcome any opportunity to binge-snack with friends and family. Typically you won’t find anything healthy at a Super Bowl party, except maybe a lonely vegetable tray who’s health benefits are easily negated by the bowl of ranch in the middle. So if you’re looking for a healthy alternative to the standard Super Bowl fare, this edamame hummus is perfect.
Total Time: 20 minutes
2 cups frozen shelled edamame
1/3 cup fresh cilantro
2 garlic cloves
juice from one lemon
1 tbsp. tahini
2 tbsp. lemon zest
2 tbsp. water
2 tbsp. olive oil
1 tsp. sea salt
- Cook the frozen edamame according to package instructions. (Usually takes 5-8 minutes.)
- Juice and zest the lemon. Peel garlic garlic cloves and place in food processor. Pulse until finely chopped.
- Scrape down the walls of the food processor. Add the remaining ingredients and process until you reach desired consistency.
Tips: For a smoother hummus, add an additional tbsp of olive oil and process longer. I think this hummus is best served cold, so I recommend refrigerating for at least an hour or two before serving. This hummus also goes great in Buddha bowls or on toast!
