Edamame Spinach Hummus

If you’ve been following our recent recipes, you’ll know that we love any excuse to add more veggies to our meals! Whether that be via an edamame spinach hummus, smoothies, pesto, tomato sauce, or soup, there’s always room for just one more veggie!

This time around, we chose edamame and spinach, two iron and protein-packed superfoods that will help you make sure you’re getting all the nutrients you need! Add calcium-loaded tahini and B-12 fortified nutritional yeast to the mix, and this dip is basically a quick meal.

Hummus” comes from the Arabic word ḥummuṣ meaning “chickpeas” and this delicious dish has been eaten for centuries.

We started off by cooking our spinach with a bit of water. This helps increase the bioavailability of the iron, and makes the dip smoother. We then added it to our food processor, along with the edamame, some chopped red onions, tahini, nutritional yeast, oregano, garlic cloves, lemon juice, salt, and pepper. After giving these ingredients a good blend, our hummus was prepped! We are loving it over crackers and bread!

Don’t take our word for it! Try this recipe yourself, and tell us what you think! Find the recipe here:
