Anyone else out there a straight up hummus addict like me?!! It’s a well known fact (yes, fact) that hummus can make any sandwich, wrap, or even salad taste 100 times better when it’s added to the mix. It’s also one of those staples that is surprisingly SUPER easy to make at home and honestly tastes ten times better when homemade. So, that is why I have done my due diligence to provide you with my absolute favorite hummus recipe today!

While I love all varieties of hummus, I have to say that Edamame Hummus holds the numero uno spot for me (yes, there is an official list)! Beyond tasting amazing, one main reason I happen to LOVE edamame is that it is absolutely packed with nutrients. In just 1/2 cup of shelled edamame you get a whopping 9 grams of fiber and 11 grams of protein. For all my vegetarians and vegans out there, these numbers are impressive. Did I also mention that edamame are actually green soybeans? I actually use them whole as a topping in salads and quinoa bowls all the time, but when blended they turn into this super smooth paste you’ll want to spread on everything and anything!
When I was creating this recipe, I thought I would just post the instructions to make hummus. However, I decided to do you all a favor and turn my original recipe into an even more fabulous one- Edamame Hummus Veggie Wraps! Now I’m not going to lie, I kept this recipe super simple so it could literally be something you whip up in the morning before work or as a last minute appetizer for your next party (love me some cheese boards, but this tends to be a lighter alternative to snack on). Basically slather your wrap in some hummus, grab all the veggies you can fit into your wrap, roll it up, and enjoy! I’ve included the veggies I really enjoy pairing with edamame hummus below, however, I want you to know you truly have the freedom to add whatever you want to your wraps. Does it get any better than that?!
I know I’ve already said it once, but what I truly love about this recipe is its simplicity. While it’s always an entertaining time challenging myself with complex meals or desserts, I like having staples like hummus wraps on hand to help me eat healthy, WHOLE, nutrient-rich food when I just don’t feel like cooking.
Hope you enjoy this colorful concoction!
