Edamame Hummus

Edamame what?  Edamame also known as soy beans makes an incredible hummus. I grow Edamame in my garden.  Why??  Because I can .. and because Edamame, any way you serve it, is delicious and full of health benefits.  Fresh is the best, but if you are not growing it in your garden you may also find it in your fresh produce section of your local market or in the frozen section.  ENJOY!
