Edamame Hummus

It’s been a few weeks since I posted anything because I was busy developing recipes for a new diet book that comes out in January. It’s being published by Hyperion so will have mass distribution in bookstores nationwide. It’s very exciting! I’ll let you know more about the book the closer we get to the release date.

Now back to today’s post…It’s an easy recipe for hummus that I came up with a few weeks ago. You can buy hummus at most any grocery store but it’s cheaper to make your own. Plus you can control the ingredients. If you’ve never tried hummus, you should. It makes a good sandwich spread or dip for vegetables or pita chips. It’s usually made with chickpeas but I tried making it with edamame (green soybeans) instead. It turned out great! And you get 7 grams of protein per 2 tablespoon serving. Try it and let me know what you think!

Edamame Hummus
1 cup shelled frozen edamame, thawed
1 garlic clove
1/4 cup tahini
2 tablespoons lemon juice
2-3 tablespoons water
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 teaspoon Kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/4 teaspoon paprika

Place everything in a small blender or food processor and blend or process until mixture is combined and smooth. Add additional water, if needed to reach the consistency you prefer.
