Making your own Vegan Low-Fat Edamame Hummus is easy! I discovered these incredible crackers called Mary’s Gone Crackers while shopping at Whole Foods. They are vegan, gluten-free and have fabulous crunch. Although I have been avoiding carbs other than whole grains and rice, I truly have to say, these crackers are the BOMB!
So, if I buy crackers, I needed to make a dip. Store-bought hummus, although delicious, is not the same as the homemade version. First, you determine the ingredients in your hummus! The fewer ingredients, the cleaner the hummus. You can also determine the fat content, which is always my goal.
I buy Mame, which are the soy beans inside the edamame, removed. You can find Mame in the freezer section. It will save you some time. You have to cook them first, following the bag instructions. Vegan Low-Fat Edamame Hummus is so easy to make!
Then, it’s easy and 1,2, 3. All you need is tahini, water, cumin, lemon, paprika, and garlic and you have an incredible homemade hummus. If you don’t want to eat crackers, you can serve with sliced vegetables. I served cucumber slices and crackers to give my guests a choice. I also garnished with some roasted pumpkin seeds. Yu may leave them off, and add a few mame you remove prior to adding to the food processor.
