What is Edamame Hummus
Edamame hummus is a yummy variation of my classic hummus recipe made with steamed soybeans instead of chickpeas. It has the same creamy texture we love but a richer flavor thanks to the combination of tahini, fresh garlic, and soy sauce.
How Many Calories Are in this Edamame Dip
Each ¼ cup serving of edamame dip has 211 calories, 7 grams of protein, 17 grams of healthy fats, and only 4 grams of net carbs.
This is a terrific nutritional profile; plus, edamame is considered a complete protein because it provides all of the essential amino acids our bodies need but can’t produce.
