Edamame and Garbanzo Beans

Here's a great spread that's packed with protein and fiber...and tastes good too!  Edamame are green soy beans that can be used in soups, chilies, and even roasted for snacks. You can find them in the freezer section of the grocery store. Serve this spread with veggies and/or crackers.  I even like it for lunch!

2 cups shelled edamame beans cooked per package instructions and cooled
1 cup canned garbanzo (chick peas), drained and rinsed
1/2 tsp ground cumin
1 large garlic clove
juice of one lemon
1/2 tsp black pepper
1/2 to 1 tsp salt
1/3 to 1/2 cup olive oil ( or more depending on your taste)
Process all ingredients in a mini food processor until as smooth or chunky as you like
Chill for about an hour before serving
