edamame hummus

Posted on October 22, 2011


Oooh this is gooood!  Even more exciting is how good it is for you. It is made with edamame (hence the name), which is full of filling fiber, heart protecting potassium, and protein.

I love making hummus, and this hummus might be my new fav.  The ingredients are simple, too.  Here’s what you’ll need:

Edamame Hummus

Makes about 2 cups

  • 2 cups shelled edamame*
  • 2 cups water
  • 3 TBSP olive oil
  • 2 TBSP lemon juice (about ½ large lemon)
  • 2 TBSP water
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 ½ tsp garlic, minced
  • ¼ tsp red pepper flakes
  • ½ tsp salt-free all-purpose seasoning (like The Delicious Dietitian Creole Spice Blend)
  • 2 TBSP chopped parsley

Put edamame and water in a small saucepan.  Bring to a boil and reduce heat. Simmer for 10 minutes. Drain and take coating off edamame.

Process cooked edamame, olive oil, lemon juice, salt, garlic, red pepper flakes, and all-purpose seasoning in a food processor until well combined.  Add parsley and process until smooth.

Serve with crudités or pita chips.


*you can find edamame (or soybeans) in the frozen section of most grocery stores and supermarkets*

Happy Saturday! ROLL TIDE!!
