Whether you’re looking for a hearty dip to serve guests at your next dinner party, or simply want to whip up a healthy snack to keep on-hand for when late night cravings strike, this edamame hummus is the perfect go-to. Edamame are full of fiber, while chickpeas pack in a solid dose of protein, keeping you fuller for longer, and iron, which boosts metabolism and immune system health.
The best part? It’s simple to make — all you need is a food processor to chop, mix and puree the ingredients into a creamy, rich, healthy dip. Enjoy!
