This creamy Edamame Avocado Hummus is easy to make and is cheaper than store bought! It is perfect for people on a low carb diet.
I created this Edamame Avocado Hummus because it has a decent amount of protein and it is low in carbs. I was eating a high fat low carb diet, or vegan keto diet, at the time.
This recipe had the fat that I needed since it contains avocado. Edamame contains less carbs than garbanzo beans, so it was a good choice. Together they make a thick, creamy hummus.
Hummus is a condiment that I love to have around. It works well in sandwiches or as a snack with veggies. It is very versatile.
Better than Store Bought
I will admit that I have become a bit of a hummus snob. Ever since creating my own, I prefer homemade, or at least a hummus with all natural ingredients.
There is one brand that I used to buy because of its price that I don’t like very much anymore. It has a few questionable ingredients on the label. Not to mention the consistency is a bit thin for my liking.This creamy Edamame Avocado Hummus is perfect for people on a low carb diet. Click To Tweet

Perfect for Entertaining
Hummus can be made in about five minutes with mostly pantry staples. I think I have around ten hummus recipes, with more to come. Once I got my base mixture to how I like it, creating hummus recipes was really easy.
Being vegan and gluten free can be hard in some social situations. Many get-togethers that I go to don’t have much for me to eat. I am always happy to see hummus though. Since it is high in protein, I can easily fill up on it.
Since you can make it ahead of time, it is a hostess’ dream come true. I don’t know about you, but I love to have some recipes that can be prepared in advance to make the day of the get-together go smoother.
