Put an Asian spin on traditional chickpea hummus. Protein-rich edamame beans are blended with avocado (a superfood packed with fiber), potassium and vitamins, resulting in a smooth and creamy texture. The dip is seasoned with ginger (which can help boost-immunity), lime juice and sesame oil, for an addicting zesty flavor that will keep you coming back for more. Enjoy this spread as an appetizer or healthy post-workout snack served with fresh veggies, rice crackers or pita chips.
