Hummus is a delicious, gluten-free snack that is easy to make and can be paired with a number of foods from pita chips to carrot sticks. It’s also a flavorful spread to add to sandwiches.
Hummus is usually made with chickpeas and a variety of herbs and spices from Mediterranean to spicy Mexican flavors. You can even make it with other bases like sweet potatoes, beets or edamame. Here’s an absolutely spectacular-tasting recipe I learned from my days at The Soyfoods Council. It’s so flavorful and beautiful, a great snack or appetizer to serve anytime of year.

1-1/2 cups shelled edamame
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
2 garlic cloves peeled
1/2 cup parsley leaves
3 tablespoons tahini
