Soybean Hummus

In this recipe, Littlewood uses frozen shelled edamame in place of chickpeas to prepare hummus. It is also good as a spread on flatbread for a wrap sandwich or as a dip with cut-up raw vegetables. Add extra flavor to the pita chips by lightly toasting them, then rubbing them with the cut side of a halved raw garlic clove.
