Edamame Hummus

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.

Edamame Hummus

Total Time: 20 minutes

Serves: 8+

Ingredients:

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

Steps:

  1. Cook the frozen edamame according to package instructions.  (Usually takes 5-8 minutes.)
  2. Juice and zest the lemon.  Peel garlic garlic cloves and place in food processor. Pulse until finely chopped.
  3. Scrape down the walls of the food processor.  Add the remaining ingredients and process until you reach desired consistency.

Guten Appetit!

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!
