  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • Black and white sesame seeds for garnish (optional)

Tips:

Edamame hummus is incredibly versatile. Serve as with your favorite vegetables, whole grain crackers, or whole wheat pita. Try replacing the mayonnaise on a sandwich or in a wrap with this hummus to add more protein, fiber, and flavor to your lunch. Add cheese to your sandwich or a glass of milk to meet DASH guidelines.
