Spinach Edamame Garlic Hummus

Spinach Edamame Garlic Hummus
You can feel really good about eating this hummus.

It’s packed with real, fresh ingredients – spinach, edamame, garlic, and garbanzo beans.

And it tastes really, really good.

Spinach Edamame Garlic Hummus
Of course hummus is great on just about anything – but if you eat this spinach edamame garlic hummus with vegetables, I am pretty sure there will be room in your diet for some dessert.

And while I love this hummus, I really love dessert.

    This look really delicious and by looking at the ingredients, I will not be guilty eating this. This will be great to just be in stock when pang of hunger strikes.

    This sounds so good! I would love it if you would share it on my Tasty Tuesday party going on now!

  6. Elise — March 10, 2014 at 10:13 pm

    Looks delicious and it’s my favorite color too! I’ve never heard of edamame before… guess I’m gonna be looking that one up!

    • The First Year Blog — March 11, 2014 at 7:58 am

      Hi Elise! Edamame looks like a green lima bean. You can find it in the freezer vegetable section usually in a steamable bag. Some edamame comes in the pod still, and you won’t want to eat that part, so you have to shell it first!

    This is interesting. Looks very healthy, even though I have no idea what edamame is. Lol. Had to look that up via Google. Haha. Would be interesting to try this sometime, as I do love dips to go with chips or crackers while watching home videos. :-)

  8. Sue — March 11, 2014 at 10:22 am

    Yum, this is right up my alley. Love all the ingredients. I think I’ll make it for lunch.

  9. Erlene — March 11, 2014 at 2:45 pm

    Yum. We love dips and I’m always looking for something new to try. Did you find the edamame to have a gritty texture? I sort of processed edamame for a filling before and noticed if I over did it that it became gritty.

    • Beth @ The First Year Blog — March 11, 2014 at 6:51 pm

      Hi Erlene! It didn’t have a gritty texture, but there are a lot of other things mixed in with it.. so I can’t tell.
