I couldn’t be happier to be guest posting today for Rachel as she takes time to spend with her sweet new baby!

In honor of the new year and healthy-eating resolutions, I am excited to introduce you to one of my favorite dips – Ginger Wasabi Edamame Hummus.

We have a local hummus brand in Kansas City that has been making a similar dip for years.  But after buying it so many times, I finally decided it was time to try and make my own.  So I rounded up the ingredients and let the food processor do its work.  In no time, this green goodness was ready to go.  And pretty sure it rocked my socks off.

To be honest, I’m not sure how this flavor combination could not be a winner.  I am all for any excuse to eat ginger and wasabi!  But it turns out that in addition to being awesome with your sushi, they make a rockin’ dip.  You can add as much or as little to you want for this recipe, but I like a little heat and that sweet kick of ginger.  So mine ended up being super flavorful, which is exactly what I like in a healthy dip.  I also liked using the edamame for a little extra “green” action.

So if you are looking for a healthy new dip to try in the new year (especially for some – ahem – big football games coming up), give this one a go!
