Wasabi Lemon Dip Mix has a scrumptious combination of flavors. Its use is not limited to sour cream based dips. Hummus (a vegetarian dip) is amazing with this fusion of Asian flavor and African preparation. There's a burst of flavor in every bite, but not enough take your breath away! Hummus is traditionally made with mashed chickpeas, but as hummus has grown in popularity, that pallet has expanded to include many vegetables, sometimes alone, sometimes blended with chick peas. Newest on the scene is mashed cooked edamame (soy beans), and it’s an excellent summer appetizer.
Here the Wasabi Lemon Edamame Hummus looks like it could be plain wasabi paste, but it's MUCH better, and not nearly that spicy. It’s delightful with veggie dippers (pictured), pita bread, or falafel chips (pictured). You'd never guess how healthy this dip/spread is as pictured (higher in protein and lower in carbs than traditional hummus), so just don't mention that part when people at your summer party tell you how much they love this new flavor fusion. See APPETIZER RECIPES for directions.
TIP: Use Non-GMO edamame for maximum health benefits.
If you prefer traditional hummus, just substitute drained canned chickpeas for the edamame.
TIP: If you like the Wasabi Lemon flavor but find the hummus too spicy once it’s made, add mashed edamame or chickpeas until it reaches a spice level that’s comfortable. If you have tried the dip already and know it will be too spicy, start with 2 cans of veggies, but use only half the mix and taste. Add mix a little at a time until the hummus is at the spice level you want. Flavors intensify somewhat as the hummus sets, so it’s a good idea to taste again after about an hour of chilling and make corrections if needed (add more mashed veggies).
