This twist on traditional hummus is sure to please. The edamame packs a huge plant based protein punch. And added bonus - soybeans (edamame) contain isoflavones, a type of phytoestrogen that may reduce the frequency of hot flashes in some women. It’s full of fiber and healthy fat (from the olive oil and tahini), making this a high-satiety snack. We love to pair it with some raw cut veggies or whole grain pita triangles.
