Edamame “Hummus”

I know, I know.  I’ve all but disappeared.  Two jobs will do that to a blog.

It’s all I can do even remember eat breakfast, let alone remember to take a photo.  Don’t worry, you probably don’t need to see the same photos of yogurt and granola over and over again.  Although, come to think of it…I do have a granola recipe to re-try and share.

But for now I want to share this super easy dip I made last weekend.  I had a bag of frozen edamame needing to vacate my messy freezer so I decided it was high time I tried my hand at Edamame Hummus.

I’ve seen this concoction mentioned many times on the internet and in various magazines but I’ve never managed to save any of those recipes.  A quick internet search led me to realize I didn’t need a recipe.  Just a food processor and a few shakes of this and that did the job!

We ate ours up with lime tortilla chips and a side of salty olives.  This would also be deeeeelish on rice crackers, bagel chips, or with veggie sticks.  Or how about an Asian-fusion thing involving grilled chicken and a soft wheat tortilla?  Oh yes.

Try it.  You’ll love it.  Promise.
