Edamame Hummus rolls - Lunch on "E" Day



So it's lunch time on "E" day and I'm using EDAMAME

I made Edamame Hummus and used it in rolls. This hummus tastes so refreshingly delicious and can be pared with just about anything in a roll. No need for any other condiments! Yeah! 



Ingredients

1.5 cups cooked edamame (just remove from pods after cooking, if using that type)
3 Tbsp olive oil
1 Tbsp tahini
1.5 tsp crushed garlic
salt to taste
water
1 tsp or so of crushed fresh herbs (any type, to your liking)

Instructions

1. In a food processor (or magic bullet), blend all ingredients. If it gets too thick, continuously add water by the spoonful until you reach the desired consistency.

2. Grab a wrap and plop some hummus down, spreading all around. Top with spinach, alfalfa sprouts, cheese (whatever you like). Roll up and cut into little rolls. You could also just fold into a wrap, if you like.

So yummy!



EDAMAME BEANS

These are made from soybeans and are an excellent, and popular snack, especially among athletes. This is because of their high protein content. They are also one of the few plant foods which contain all of the essential amino acids. 

Edamame contains significant amount of dietary fiber and is a good source of folate and Vitamin K.

Excessive consumption of soy can contribute to too much estrogen in our bodies - BAD  :(   So just like a rational consumption of soy helps to avoid cancer....OVER consumption can lead to the stimulation of growth of cancerous cells in females. 

LIKE EVERY FOOD...EAT IN MODERATION---NOT EVERY DAY!
