Edamame Hummus

Over the past few months we have developed a lunch routine of eating the same thing everyday. This is surprising seeing how diverse our dinner menus tend to be. I have been looking for new ideas to get us out of our lunchtime rut. I have purchased edamame hummus before but had never made it. Needless to say it is very simple and similar to chickpea hummus.

Ingredients:
1 cup edamame cooked per the package instructions
1 tablespoon tahini
1 tablespoon water
1/4 teaspoon of lemon zest
2 tablespoons of fresh lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon cumin
1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil

Edamame hummus

1. Cook the edamame per the package instructions. In your food processor combine the cooked edamame, tahini, water, lemon zest, lemon, salt, and cumin. Puree until the mixture is smooth. With the food processor running slowly add the olive oil until fully combined. (If needed you can add some additional oil)

Serve with your favorite pita chips or veggies. This can even be used as a spread on wraps and sandwiches! Do you have any easy things you like to make for packed lunches?
