Are you needing more greens in your life but just don’t know how to get them?! We all know the amazing benefits of plants! However sometimes it can be tricky to get as much as we would like into our diet.
By making this spinach and edamame hummus at home you know you are getting all of that goodness and nourishment without having to eat a plate of kale for lunch.
This hummus takes less that 10 minutes to make and is so delicious that you could serve it at a dinner party and people would ask for the recipe…
Spinach has amazing nutritional qualities. It is rich in iron, a major contributor to the functioning of red blood cells within the body. It also as rich amounts of vitamin K which is important in maintaining bone health.
Edamame as well as being utterly delicious is nutritionally great for us too! (YAY) It is a rich source of protein which is so important for veggies and vegans and also contains high amounts of fibre.
Who doesn’t want to eat food which tastes down-right incredible, is good for your health and doesn’t harm animals or the planet we live on?
You will need:
280g edamame beans
30g spinach leaves
1 clove of garlic
10g chopped parsley
60ml Lemon Juice (about 1 and a half)
60ml Vegtable stock (I use bouillon)
2 tablespoons of sesame oil
1/2 teaspoon tamari (or soy sauce)
1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
Salt and Pepper to season
Place the edamame, spinach and garlic in a food processor and blitz until broken down and nicely combined.
Then simply add the parsley, lemon juice, tahini, vegetable stock, oil, tamari and paprika and then blitz until it has a smooth consistency.
Then add salt and pepper to taste. Garnish with extra edamame on top and it is ready to serve. (Yes it really is that easy!)
Crazy quick to make , ridicously yummy and something a little different to your everyday hummus.
It works so well as a dip for veggies, on a slice of toast, with homemade tortilla chips or even on a sandwich.
I love sharing these simple and easy recipes and I hope you enjoy my new favourite hummus as much as I am!
