Edamame Hummus with Spiced Pita Chips

 Both recipes can be found on .( Originally from Ellie Krieger.)

Ingredients for hummus:

2 C edamame (I used fresh. You can also use frozen and cook according to package directions)
1 C silken tofu, drained
½ t salt
Black pepper to taste
1 ½ t cumin
3 cloves garlic
¼ C olive oil
1/3 C fresh lemon juice

Place everything in a food processor and blend until very smooth. (Do you know the trick of dropping the garlic cloves into the processor while it is running? The result is very finely minced garlic.)

Ingredients for the pita chips:

6 whole wheat pita breads, cut into 8 wedges and split
¼ C olive oil
2 t cumin
1 t ground coriander
½ t cayenne pepper
1 t garlic powder
½ t black pepper
½ t salt

Combine the oil and spices in a bowl. Add the pita bread and use your hands to mix it well. Bake on 2 baking sheets at 375 degrees for 15 minutes. Turn the chips over after 7 minutes.
