YUMMY PROTEIN PACKED EDAMAME BASIL HUMMUS RECIPE

If you LOVE hummus as much as we do, you are going to really enjoy this flavorful and protein rich edamame and basil version from The Yummy Mummy Kitchen. It’s gluten free, super fast and easy to make, especially if you have a Blendtec or Vitamix blender, and is nice and smooth. Of course you can use a food processor, or try to work it out with your “regular blender” (cut up the basil and use a couple Tablespoons of reserved garbanzo bean liquid). 🙂 It’s perfect as a dip or using as a spread for sandwiches or wraps. Edamame gives this hummus recipe an added protein boost, and the fresh basil gives it an intense flavor that gets more delicious with every bite! This hummus scored a 9.5 out of 10 for our two Blender Babes Recipe Testers – this is a MUST TRY!

HEALTH BENEFITS OF EDAMAME AND BASIL
Edamame soybeans
are one of the most nutritious and versatile plant foods available. This legume dates back nearly 3,000 years in Chinese culture. A large body of evidence indicates that replacing some animal products with soy protein can reduce the risk of heart disease, since soy lowers the artery-clogging LDL cholesterol without reducing levels of the beneficial HDL cholesterol. Throughout Asia, where soy has long been a dietary staple, the rates of breast and prostate cancer are much lower than Western countries.

Basil was first mentioned in English writing in the mid-seventeenth century and in American literature about 100 years later.  Basil is considered sacred in the Hindu cultures, believed by many to be a favorite of their gods. In some cultures basil is a sign of love and devotion between young couples. Basil cannot be planted outdoors until all damage of frost has past. Sow seeds in a light rich soil.  Sow plants every few weeks to obtain fresh young leaves for peak flavor. FLOWERING FACTS: They put out small white flowers that grew in spikes atop each stalk when the plants reach 12-18 inches. Pinch flower spikes off to prevent the leaves from losing it flavor.
