Uniquely Delicious • One-Of-A-Kind Value
Some might say we'll stop at nothing when it comes to hummus. We're not sure of that – there are probably things we wouldn't blend with this all-time favorite dip. We'll just admit it… we're hummus-happy here at Trader Joe's. And when something tastes as good as Trader Joe's Edamame Hummus, well, it's easy to understand our fascination (or fetish, depending on your point of view).
Although hummus is customarily made with garbanzo beans, we've broken with tradition here and instead crafted a hummus using tender, green soybeans (aka edamame) as our foundation. Blending them with sesame tahini, lemon juice, sea salt, olive & canola oils and a touch of garlic yields a smooth, creamy, green dip that’s packed with protein and free of cholesterol. It's excellent with crackers, flatbreads or crudités, and makes a good spread for a veggie sandwich. It's a great value, too, at $2.49 for each eight ounce tub.
