Edamame Hummus and other tasty food

by - 10:56 AM


I’ve been a little busy doing recipe research at this time of year. Well, sure you could call it eating other people’s food but sometimes I need to try different things and see different things in person to get inspired.

Edamame Hummus is so good!

I’d never had edamame hummus before but when I discovered it I anchored myself by the appetizers and had seconds a few times. This is definitely on my must-make list.

Thank you Pam for sending me the recipe I am going to make this for sure.


Edamame Hummus

  • 1 1/2 cups edamame (green soy beans) cooked and shelled
  • 2 tbsp tahini paste (sesame seed paste)
  • 1/4 cup water plus more if needed
  • 1 tsp lemon zest
  • juice of one lemon
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • Kosher salt to taste
  • pepper
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • black and white sesame seeds as a garnish (optional)

In a food processor, blend soy beans, tahini, water, lemon juice, lemon zest, garlic, salt, pepper and 1 tsp olive oil until smooth. Add more water if needed until consistency is smooth. Place in a bowl and top with remainder oil and sesame seeds. Serve with your favorite vegetables.
