Look at me, 3 blog posts in 3 days! It reminds me of olden times, when I only had one child and Carson and I were able to stay up later than 9pm to watch television together. Alas, things have changed. My children have multiplied by 3, I'm halfway through my 30's, and I have no idea what Pokemon Go is. All of that means, semi-homemade tricks are crucial in my kitchen. Recently, I've been wanting to make hummus from scratch - and I'll get to it - but for now, taking store-bought hummus and blending it with shelled edamame beans will do! (My kids love hummus, so I'm also hoping this might turn them onto the idea of green foods in general... maybe?) Here's what I did:
Take one family-size portion of hummus (1 lb.) and throw it in a blender or food processor. Add roughly 2 cups of shelled edamame and blend until smooth, adding olive oil if needed. Season to taste with salt, pepper and a squeeze of fresh lemon. Sprinkle more olive oil on top before serving.
Easy! Delicious! And maybe, just maybe, you'll save some time in the kitchen and you can apply it to watching an episode of Orange is the New Black, Season 3 (because you'll never be current).
