Edamame Hummus

Two of my favorite loves…hummus & edamame, why not put um’ together ūüôā

Apricosa created a masterpiece with her Edamame-Feta-Hummus recipe.

Recipe is as follows:

  • 12 oz. shelled edamame
  • 1 1/2 Tbs. tahini
  • 1 clove garlic, finely minced
  • 1/4 cup (packed) sesame leaves
  • chopped 1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese
  • 1/4 cup plain non-fat yogurt
  • 3/4 tsp. salt 1/8 tsp
  • freshly-ground black pepper

Place  all ingredients in a food processor or blender and process until fully blended and smooth. Add more salt and pepper as desired.

I didn’t include the sesame leaves in my batch. I don’t have sesame leaves just laying around the house ūüėČ I added more yogurt than the recipe called for, and used Greek yogurt rather than standard yogurt.

My food processor bit the dust (right in the middle of mixing)… bummer. I finished blending everything in a little chopper gadget I had on-hand.

Enjoy hummus¬†with veggggies, pita bread, or whatever your heart desires. I tried some on Wasa Crisp n’ Light crackers. Y.U.M.

Edamame is loaded with heart-healthy mono and polyunsaturated¬†fats. Edamame is high in protein (8 grams per ¬Ĺ cup),¬†and is an¬†ideal choice for getting your¬†25 grams of soy protein daily, which can help reduce cholesterol when part of a low-fat diet. Edamame also provides 4 grams of fiber per ¬Ĺ cup.

Great article on Edamame from Cooking Light Magazine.
