Healthy Dips – Edamame Hummus

I love Real Simple and the February issue was all about superfoods. I’ve been trying numerous recipes for the superfoods (including Kale Chips) and each has been a success. The most recent attempt was no exception.

Edamame is such a great legume and I’m used to eating it in the pod (like at a Japanese restaurant) or occasionally on a salad. The recipe in Real Simple calld for creating a hummus-like dip. So easy and delicious that I can’t believe the thought hadn’t crossed my mind before.

Ben and I ate this dip over the weekend around 4pm. We weren’t even hungry for dinner; it was so filling.

Ingredients

  • 1 half bag frozen shelled edamame
  • 2 garlic cloves, pressed
  • Olive Oil
  • Salt & Pepper to taste

Cook the edamame according to the bag instructions. Once cooked, puree the edamame with the pressed garlic and olive oil until it reaches a hummus-like consistency. Add salt and pepper to taste. Serve with pretzels and/or cut veggies.
