Edamame Hummus

Serves 4

30 minutes or fewer

Using bright green edamame instead of garbanzo beans gives this dip a fresh, sprightly flavor——and it doesn’t need a drop of oil. Serve it as you would traditional hummus; it’'s delicious with pita bread. Or mound it onto a large plate, garnish with paprika, and surround it with either cooked or raw veggies.
  • 1 ½ cups frozen blanched shelled edamame (green soybeans)
  • ½ cup fresh flat-leaf parsley leaves
  • 3 Tbs. tahini
  • 3 Tbs. fresh lemon juice
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped (about 2 tsp.)

1. Prepare edamame according to package directions, omitting salt. Drain.

2. Combine edamame, parsley, tahini, 3 Tbs. water, lemon juice, garlic and salt to taste in food processor; blend 1 to 2 minutes, or until smooth. 

3. Spoon hummus into serving bowl.

Great dish but a little dry. I added just a little olive oil and it seemed to pick the dish up. I also added about 1/2 tsp cumin for additional spice.
