Edamame Hummus – Bariatric Snack Ideas



Edamame Hummus – The Laughing Cow® provided me with product and a $25 gift card for this review. However, thoughts and opinions are my own and do not necessarily reflect those of the brand. 

Years ago I had edamame hummus from Trader Joes® and loved it. The thing is, we don’t have a Trader Joe’s in my area. I was on vacation in California and picked up a container with a bag of carrots for a picnic. The long, lost edamame hummus that still comes to mind….

When The Laughing Cow® provided me with product and a gift card and ask me to help them Reinvent Snacking, I thought of my old friend. I checked out of a few recipes online and decided I could make edamame hummus with way less ingredients and no oil using The Laughing Cow® Cheese to make it creamy! 

And so…that’s what I did. I used my food processor to cream together edamame and wedges of creamy swiss. I added a bit of lemon juice to smooth it out, instead of the oil. A pinch of salt and pepper and moments later my carrots had a friend! And so did I!

This recipes is perfect for the upcoming Super Bowl weekend – especially if you’ve had weight-loss surgery. Low in fat and delicious with carrots. Take that chips and high-fat dip!!!!

  1. My husband and I came to a few meetings at the hospital and he had been approved to have the sleeve surgery, well long story short he had another nerve stroke and had back surgery, then to top it all off he a some point was bitten by a lone star tick and now has alpha-gal. We are having a hard time finding foods to fix him. We have done lots of research but would like some input from you if you could.

  2. I am so sorry to hear this! I would recommend meeting with a dietitian one-on-one for a more individulized plan. I’m afraid I am limited on what recommendations I can make via the internet. Wishing you both the best and full recovery for him.
