Edamame Hummus has garlic, lemon juice, lemon zest, parsley, cumin and is high in protein. This is not your typical hummus – it’s better!
Subbing out edamame for the traditional chickpea makes this dip into an unexpected recipe. Although in this recipe we use edamame the consistency is very similar to hummus you might by in the food store.
My family loves to snack on all different types of hummus. Making your own is very easy. All you need is a food processor and a few simple ingredients. Hummus is also typically made with tahini also known as a sesame paste. Tahini can be expensive, however, Trader Joe’s sells a container in the refrigerated section for $2.99, which is my favorite.
This recipe was also inspired by the Trader Joe’s Edamame Hummus which is quite delicious. The flavors here are very similar except you control what goes in!
serving size: 2 tablespoons
- 1 1/2 cups (12 ounces) of Shelled Edamame, cooked according to package
- 1/4 cup tahini
- 3 tablespoons lemon juice, half a lemon
- zest of 1 lemon
- 1-2 garlic clove, peeled
- 2 tablespoons flat leaf parsley, roughly chopped
- salt to taste ( I used 1/2 teaspoon)
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
- 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil, additional for garnish if desired
- 1/4 cup water (only as needed if the hummus seems thick)
- Combine edamame, tahini, lemon juice, zest, garlic, parsley, salt, and cumin in a large food processor. Drizzle with olive oil through the feed tube while motor is running until mixture is fully incorporated. If needed add water.
- Transfer to a serving dish and garnish with a few edamame, sesame seeds and paprika if desired. Serve with pita chips or carrots.
