RECIPE: Edamame Hummus

Check out a hearty yet healthy edamame hummus recipe that will definitely score big at your next party.

Edamame is more commonly known as a soybean. In Asia, soybeans have been used for over two thousand years as a major source of protein. The pods are lightly boiled in salted water, and then the seeds are squeezed directly from the pods into the mouth with the fingers. Using soybeans instead of chickpeas to make this hummus I guess you can say is Asian-Middle Eastern fusion. Serve this as a dip with veggies, or for lunch with with a salad.
