edamame "hummus"

A change of pace from the usual chickpea hummus... a bowl of spring-y green goodness.

I put "" around the word "hummus" because I learned that hummus actually = chickpea... so technically this isn't hummus but a pureed bean dip. That's if you want to be technical. Anyway...

In a food processor:

half a bag of frozen shelled edamame, steamed until tender but still bright green (after steaming, dump into a bowl of ice water to stop cooking)
tahini, about a tablespoon
1-2 cloves of garlic
salt and pepper to taste
lemon juice to taste
fruity, good quality extra virgin olive oil - enough to make it creamy

I think I ate half the bowl. 

Pin It!
