Minty Guacamole-Edemame Hummus




Skip the garbanzo beans this time and make some delicious flavorful, colorful hummus with avocados, edamame and few springs of mint! Delish!!!
Use it as a dip or just spread it over a toasted whole wheat bread, you can also spread it over pizza or even a burger...really the options are endless.
Here is Sun dried tomato pesto that I posted earlier, which can also be enjoyed like hummus.

I will be posting quinoa+ oats crusted pizza spread with hummus as my next post. Take a peek into it.:)
