Personal Trainer Recipe – Edamame and Green Pea “Hummus”
This personal trainer recipe is a deliciously chunky Dip or Spread.
1 Cup frozen Edamame (soy beans)
1/2 cup frozen Green Peas
1 or 2 cloves of garlic
1.5 teaspoons of Tahini (found in store with the peanut butters)
2 tablespoons Olive Oil
1 tablespoon of water
1/4 tsp salt (or to taste)
Boil frozen soy beans and peas (soy beans take twice as long). Strain the vegetables.
Add to a food processor with all other ingredients. If the mixture is too dry, add more water a teaspoon at a time until it is a thick chunky dip.
Serve with cut vegetables, pita bread, corn chips, or use as a spread on a crostini or as a base for a sandwich.
P.S. I had a nice piece of salmon last night and put a big blob of the hummus on top of it (as well as some “pico””) and it was divine 🙂 Here’s the pic to prove it.
