Kids love dips for fresh veggie sticks. In this recipe, we create a bright green hummus with edamame and peas. Check with your school about what kind of nut or seed butters can be sent with lunches.
In the bowl of a food processor, add the edamame, peas, nut/seed butter, lemon juice, garlic, salt and water. Pulse until semi-smooth.
Remove the lid and scrape down the sides of the bowl with a spatula. Place the lid back on and, with the food processor running, add the olive oil in a thin stream through the chute of the lid.
Tear the basil into smaller pieces, add to the mixture, and pulse until combined.
Serve with crunchy vegetables and baked pita points or crackers.
We created this delicious dip for the Healthy Kids Community Challenge video series with Michelle Ferreri.
