Edamame & Asparagus Hummus

I recently was invited to a media event where the Kenmore brand marked its 100th Anniversary. The event was celebrated with a live cookmore demonstration and tasting of super eats from Kenmore’s in-house chef Kari Karch showcased easy recipes, filled with flavor and fun.

This dish was one of my favorites – a really healthy and easy green hummus made with asparagus and edamame.
