Green Spinach & Edamame Hummus Recipe

 
Edamame and White bean HUMMUS. Why not Chick Peas? Well, being a vegetarian I eat a lot of hummus made with garbanzos, so I like this recipe because it is something differently delicious! The spinach makes it even more healthy for a better lifestyle. It is also a fun and unique recipe to make for a gathering like family time, pot lucks, having friends over and more. Enjoy!

First take the edamame beans out of the pod.
They are also sold already shelled in the freezer section,
so you could look for those too.
You need 1 and ½ cups for the recipe which was a bit more than one bag.

Chill for at least an hour or two before serving.  Overnight is even better.
Serve with pita chips or other dippers…but I love it on sandwiches
I had it last night for dinner over roasted potatoes.
This is a great protein to add to lots of things like many types of burritos,
 
 salads, burgers, over chicken and rice…
 
you dont have to be a vegetarian to LOVE it! 
Let me know if you try it and what you think!

  1. Personally, I don’t like garbanzo beans (probably because I was force fed them as a kid – lol) After reading your recipe I may have to give this a try – I may like hummus after all!

  2. I like to try new foods. I love spinach and edamame! Not sure about the Chickpeas,never eaten them before but would be willing to try this recipe.

  3. This sounds delicious! I really like hummus AND I really like edamame so, what a neat twist. On a side note, I have added chopped edamame to spinach dip and that goes great when chopped water chestnuts are added too.

  4. I have never made my own hummus. I always buy pre made varities. This looks good and I should try it.

  5. I have to admit, not a hummus fan. I even made my own one time and still didn’t like it, lol. However, as dawn said…only had chickpea kind. Maybe I would like this!

  6. I have to tell you that you are speaking a different language than I know much about! lol The food looks delicious and I’d love to try it but I’m not familiar with all that. I think I might have tasted hummus once…. Guess I need to check this out!
