Edamame Hummus

DSC_1001

Awhile ago (over a year ago) I bought the most delicious edamame hummus at Costco and enjoyed the entire jar to myself – my hubby and kids are not fans.  I am not sure why, but I haven’t had it since.  Until the other day when I was reminded of the scrumptious hummus, and knew I had to have some asap.  This was around 9pm and Costco was closed, plus I was in my pj’s and not really in the mood to go to the store, so I decided I would recreate it…  Wow! am I glad I did, because this stuff is so yummy and came together super fast.  It only has a handful of ingredients, all of which I had on hand.  AND it packs a protein and high fiber punch, it contains healthy fats, and has fewer carbs than traditional hummus.  It is the perfect appetizer/snack to serve at a get together or take to a party.  I like to eat mine with fresh crudites (aka fresh raw veggies), but it would be great with pita chips, on a sandwich, or any other way you like to enjoy hummus.
