The pot of fresh mint nestled in the landscaping by my front door is inspiring…
Scare up this hummus with edamame and walnuts for your munchkins to dig into before their Halloween treats. A healthy bunch of parsley makes the scary-good green color, boosts Vitamins K and C, adds flavinoids too, which function as antioxidants. And of course loads of good omega-3 fatty acids, protein and fiber from the walnuts and the edamame. But most important, Green Monster Dip simply tastes good. So don’t save it just for Halloween. Serve it any time as a sandwich spread…cracker, chip or veggie dip…in wraps…on toast with tomatoes and fried egg… Let me know how you serve it!
