Sumptuous Snacks!

Time to step outside what you’re used to! This is a flavor packed, high protein variation on the conventional chick pea based hummus. The sweetness from the buttery edamame makes this creamy dip/spread a hugely healthy and delicious addition to any table! Enjoy!

3 garlic cloves
1 ½ cups shelled Edamame
1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
1/3 cup tahini (sesame paste)
½ tsp cumin
½ tsp Coriander
1 tsp Za’atar (a popular and tasty Middle Eastern herb)
The juice of 2 lemons (depending on how lemony you like it)
¼ cup water
1 tbsp chopped flat leaf parsley
3 Tablespoons of Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Pepper to taste
A few dashes of hot sauce or cayenne pepper for a kick (Optional)

Mince garlic and then along with the rest of the ingredients, put in a food processor and process until the hummus is coarsely pureed. Taste, for seasoning, and serve chilled or at room temperature with a dash of paprika and some pita bread for dipping (assorted veggies and olives go great with this as well).
