Some of us consider hummus to be its own food group. You can dip vegetables in it, spread it on bread, put it on top of a salad—the list goes on. Hummus’ versatility makes it easy to indulge in its creamy deliciousness multiple times a day. That’s why it’s important to change things up so you don’t get major chickpea burnout. This edamame hummus is exactly what you need to spice up your routine. Not only does it satisfy your taste buds, but edamame is also a great source of vegan protein. This dish has 6 grams of protein per serving, and we have a feeling you’ll end up eating more than one. The best part: This hummus can be made in just five minutes. Yup, you read that right. And those five minutes couldn’t be easier. The food processor will do most of the work, and you can decide when the hummus has reached the perfect consistency. The recipe suggests serving with crudités of your choice, such as carrots, radishes, and cucumber, but you can also eat it your way. And yes, it’s completely fine if your way is as simple as eating it with a spoon.
