“Guacamole is an obvious choice, but why not try for something new? Still only clocking in at just 15 minutes of prep time (with the help of a food processor), this Green Pea and Edamame Hummus healthy party dip fits the bill.
The edamame packs huge flavor while the peas add a hint of sweetness, balanced by garlic and a bit of tahini. A generous helping of cilantro and a squeeze of lime add freshness and a bright finish.
Besides obviously being protein and fiber packed, a platter full of veggies and toasted corn tortillas for scooping makes this hummus a sneakily healthy option for keeping your good eating habits on track…think of it as basically a vegan and gluten-free wonder spread!”
