Healthy Snack Solutions

It is hard to find snacks that are both delicious as well as healthy! Well, this recipe is a great solution. While regular chickpea hummus is yummy, using edamame results in a different hummus, at once fresher and more savory. The addition of garlic and smoked paprika make this particular recipe delightfully rich and complex. The best part? Its super easy!

Edamame: Super Food

Edamame is packed with protein, folic acid, fiber, potassium, and iron. In other words, serious nutritional bang for your buck!
