Edamame Hummus

This recipe is on the agenda for tonight…I just bought a nice big bag of frozen edamame and I cannot wait to make this tasty hummus! I enjoy this hummus as a spread on my wraps, sandwiches, pitas, muffins, and nori, as a topping on my salads, baked fish and eggs and as a dip for my crackers and raw veggies. There are endless ways to enjoy this delicious and healthy hummus…get creative and have fun by opening up your fridge and cabinets to see what you have in the house…you just may find a new way to enjoy edamame  outside of your favorite sushi restaurant!  I assure you–you will!

      Thanks Holly…Nu-Salt is a Salt-Free product that tastes just like salt but has ‘0’ Sodium…it’s great and I enjoy using it on many of my meals…give it a try and let me know your thoughts.
      Have a great day and thanks for your comment.
