Edamame Hummus | Recipe Treasure

Hummus has always been an integral part of Mediterranean cuisine as it brings out the flavor and it adds its own kick to everything that it is added to. However whenever you order hummus at a restaurant, you see more oil and less hummus which is EXTREMELY unhealthy and unappetizing.

Recently I went to a Mediterranean restaurant for my friends birthday and I had overheard someone talking about edamame and its benefits when added to everyday items that we eat while waiting to be seated. That statement stuck to me and I made hummus the next day to see how it would taste if added to hummus. Surprisingly it tasted delicious and had a very light flavor which enhanced the taste of the hummus instead of it overpowering it.

    Considering the name itself consists of two of my favorite things, I cannot wait to make this. What a brilliant idea! I’m tempted to just run to the store for some tahini right now, since that’s the only ingredient I don’t currently have in my pantry….
