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.

    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!

  7. Mareeyah — March 11, 2014 at 12:24 am

    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.

    Good Afternoon Beth, I love houmous and make it regularly. I also love edamame. The combination of the two really appeals to me. I am definitely making your spinach edamame garlic houmous and I have printed the recipe.
    Thank you for such an interesting recipe.
    Best Wishes
