This is a delicious rendition of hummus using protein-packed edamame instead of chickpeas, giving it a heartier texture than traditional hummus and fresh flavor. Edamame hummus is a great snack, filled with healthy fats; serve with raw vegetables (colorful carbohydrates) or warm naan.
1/2 pound frozen shelled non-gmo edamame (green soy beans), about 1 1/2 cups
1/4 cup tahini
1/4 cup water
1/2 teaspoon freshly grated lemon zest
1 lemon (about 3 tablespoons), juiced
1 clove garlic, smashed
3/4 teaspooon kosher salt
4TB olive oil
Boil the beans in salted water for 4 to 5 minutes.
In a food processor, puree the edamame, tahini, water, lemon zest and juice, garlic and salt, until smooth. Slowly drizzle in the olive oil while food processor is still running.
