Hummus, that garbanzo-based dip, gets a makeover from the Eat Well Enjoy Life team. They substitute white beans, black beans, lentils or edamame for the classic garbanzo.
Most come with a savory topping. Roasted pine nuts and herbs top a white bean “hummus,” for example (it’s delicious), while sunflower seeds and apricot finish spicy yellow lentils. There are three edamame versions; our favorite has a red pepper and toasted sesame topping.
Suggested retail price for a 10-ounce container is $4.99. Store locator is at http://eatwell-enjoylife.com.
