I am in love with living in Guam, but I’m sure this comes as no surprise if you follow me on Instagram. We’ve had no problem adjusting to island life so far; our weekends are filled with hiking, snorkeling and spending every waking moment at the beach. It has allowed our family to be more active and spend quality time with one another.
One thing that hasn’t changed since moving, is my addiction to binge watching Hulu. Once the kiddos are in bed, our winding down time consist of Vikings, wine, and Edamame Hummus. We love snacking, especially during such an exciting show. So, instead of chowing down on a plate of nachos, we try to snack on healthier options like veggies, nuts, or hummus.
And because I’m all about balance, I especially love pairing Edamame Hummus with Homemade Pita Chips. Believe me when I say that you will never purchase a bag of pre-made of pita chips again! Toasted until golden brown, and topped with way too much garlic is exactly how I like it. The best thing about this recipe, is that you can customize it however you like.
I could eat hummus everyday of the week, my kids on the other hand could care less. But because they love edamame, I figured I’d give this recipe it a shot. And just like that, I’m now making it twice a week!
It’s packed with protein, fiber and good fats, all of my favorite things! So it’s ok that I eat the entire batch to myself, right?!? Serve with pita chips or veggies at a family gathering, or add to your favorite sandwich!
- 2 pieces of flat bread (or pita pockets)
- 1/4 c olive oil
- 1 tbsp. garlic powder
- salt, to taste
- 2 c edamame, shelled
- 2 tbsp. freshly squeezed lemon juice
- 2 tbsp. olive oil
- 3 garlic cloves, finely chopped
- 2-4 tbsp. water
- salt, to taste
- First preheat the oven to 350 degrees. With a baking brush, lightly cover both pita rounds with olive oil. Save remaining oil for the hummus.
- Then generously sprinkle garlic powder over the pita. The more powder the more intense the garlic flavor.
- Cut each pita round like you would a pizza. The size of the pita will determine how many slices you will have.
- Then place triangles on a baking sheet and bake for approximately 10-12 minutes, or until golden brown.
- Combine all ingredients in a small food processor until well combined. Add water depending on desired consistency. Top with remaining olive oil and garnish with chopped garlic (optional)
- Tip: Instead of adding garlic to the pita chips, try with sea salt!
