Edamame Hummus So Good and Healthy

I'm always looking for ways to make healthy tasty food. I love love food! All kinds. I truly believe that if you eat well in moderation adding healthy alternatives to your favorites you will be able to keep fit and trim. Oh, I can't forget exercise! Very important for a healthy life!   Edamame is a favorite of mine especially shelled edamame which I like to cook different ways. Today I made a humus from edamame which is just delicious! I like to serve as a dip with pita chips or make a filling sandwich on pita bread. I added lettuce, slice tomato, sliced radish and sliced cucumber.  Mmm tasty!


Edamame Hummus

1 tablespoon olive oil
2 garlic cloves, chopped
3 leeks, sliced, use only the white part
4 cups frozen edamame
3/4 cup vegetable broth
1/2 cup tahini
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 teaspoon  pepper

In a medium sauce pan, heat olive oil over medium heat, add garlic and leeks. Lower heat, cover cook until tender 5-7 minutes. Add edamame cook 5 minutes. Add broth cooking an additional 3 minutes. Remove from heat, stir in tahini. Spoon into bowl of food processor.  Process until smooth. Add salt and pepper. Chill until ready to serve.
