Edamame Hummus


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 1/2 cups frozen blanched shelled edamame (green soybeans)

  • 3 Tbs. tahini
  • 3 Tbs. fresh lemon juice
