Edamame Hummus Recipe

edamame hummus

If you love hummus, you’ll love this. Better yet, this edamame mezze recipe is a lot lighter, avoiding excess fats and nut butters (ahem, tahini). It is infused with the deep tastes of roasted garlic and vegetables and the fragrance of fresh dill. The result is a light and flavorful mezze that starts off every meal on the right food. You can use it as a spread in sandwiches and wraps or as a dip for vegetable crudites or roasted pita bread. Enjoy!

Edamame: aids in weight loss because it is high in protein and low in fat. 1 cup of edamame has 17 grams of protein and 8 grams of fat (less than one of which is saturated). Edamame contains 8 grams of fiber per cooked cup and has a high concentration of AHA, an omega-3 fatty acid than converts to EPA and DHA, compounds linked to lower blood cholesterol and a decreased risk of stroke and heart disease. Edamame is also rich in manganese, vitamin K and potassium and is credited for keeping the immune system healthy and strong.
