Green Tea Edamame Hummus is an Asian twist on a classic Middle Eastern favorite. Soy beans are swapped out for chickpeas, and green tea keeps the dip tasting light, fresh, and deep with veggie flavor.
Because its flavor is stronger, bolder, and more astringent, I like using Organic Matcha Sencha Iced Tea Powder. Sencha’s flavor profile is earthy and vegetal, bold enough to stand up to the other flavorful ingredients used in this recipe.
