A little riff on traditional hummus.
In honor of the Super Bowl this weekend I thought it would be appropriate to share a recipe that you can easily take to viewing parties Sunday or you know, just consume while lounging at home and avoiding the game entirely. Up to you – but either way this dip is a great choice to have on hand as a healthier option to all the typical not so great football food aka potato chips, miscellaneous casseroles, strange looking “pizza bites” etc.
I am not an avid football fan and certainly not a Patriots or Falcons fan, so truthfully I’m not really invested in this weekend’s game. However, I was born and raised in an Eagles household so maybe the green is a good omen for next year 🙂 Regardless, I am so excited to share this quick recipe because it truly is highly addictive; as in I stood over the bowl eating it with a spoon. It is not a traditional hummus, in the sense that it lacks chickpeas and tahini. Yet, no matter what you call it this dip is mouthwatering. Dill is one of my favorite herbs and provides a beautiful freshness to any dish, while the edamame incorporates good for you protein, fiber, calcium, iron, and magnesium. The nutritional yeast also adds a cheesiness and richness that will make you forget all about that spinach and artichoke dip. You can certainly serve this with all the usual dippers such as carrots, celery, tortilla chips, gf pita – or just consume straight with a spoon like me. Either way I hope you enjoy it!
Do you have any healthier twists on football food? I’m always looking for new ways to change it up.
