Wasabi edamame hummus, with hints of soy sauce and lime is going to quickly become a new go to dip in my house. This hummus will have you rethinking the dish you were going to take to the super bowl party this weekend. Not hating on guacamole (I loooove guacamole, check out my Fava Bean Avocado Guacamole!) or queso dip, but when you can take a protein packed low fat dip that has it’s own punch, there is no question!
The best part, you can easily eat the entire bowl yourself and not have a stomach ache later that night. Nope, in fact you will likely be full from the protein and healthy fiber. And lucky you, the kick from the wasabi may keep you from eating the entire bowl in one sitting.
This hummus is perfect on veggies, crackers, tortilla chips, or pretzels. Heck it would be amazing mashed up with some avocado and tuna on a wrap or added to some chickpea “tuna” for my vegan friends.
Did I mention this hummus has wasabi in it? I don’t know about you but wasabi is my favorite part of sushi. Anytime I can add it into my daily routine I’m excited. I hope I’m not the only one that loves wasabi this much! I’m thinking of making homemade sushi with this hummus, some thinly sliced cucumber, avocado and maybe mango! Oh that will be such a fun dish. When I make that, I’ll be sure to post it on instagram 🙂 Are you following me? I’d love to connect there as well!
So Edamame: it’s a cheap source of quality protein. For 1/2 cup of shelled edamame, there are 120 calories, 10 carbs, 5 grams of fiber and 13 grams of protein. I bought a bag at Trader Joes today for $1.69. That’s the cost of one avocado 🙂 You see why I’m loving this dip now right?
