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