Even though we love to cook here at ChopChop Family, we all have been a part of a morning panic that includes staring into the fridge hoping something will appear to grab for lunch. We also know that caregivers have to find creative ways to make and pack lunch for kids every day. Our editor, Catherine Newman, once said something that made us laugh: she couldn’t believe her kids wanted dinner again after she had just made them dinner the night before! Sometimes, packing lunch feels like that—didn’t I just do this yesterday?
We challenged Bill Yosses, Director of the ChopChop Cooking Lab and former White House pastry chef, to come up with a twist to the classic hummus. Bill rose to the challenge and created an amazing Edamame Hummus. This is a bit more complicated than a typical ChopChop recipe but -- well, what do you expect from a guy who’s been cooking for the President and First Lady?
Bill serves this hummus on baby butter lettuce cups or with crudite. We love it slathered on thick bread and topped with fresh tomatoes.
