Edamame Hummus Recipe:
Yields: 3 cups
Prep time: 20 min
1/2 pound frozen shelled Edamame beans (green soy beans), about 1 1/2 cups
Tahini (sesame seed paste), room temperature*
1/4 cup water
1/2 teaspoon freshly-grated
3 tablespoons fresh-squeezed
3/4 teaspoon coarse
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon ground coriander
3 tablespoons extra-virgin
olive oil, divided
1 tablespoon chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
* Tahini is a key ingredient in hummus, the traditional Middle Eastern chickpea spread.
Look for the lightest colored raw Tahini you can find when making any hummus recipe. When you open the can or jar of tahini, you will see that the oil has
separated and risen to the top. You must stir before using to even out the consistency. Depending on the brand of your Tahini and your
taste, you might need to add little less or more Tahini. If necessary, start with less than 1/4 cup (like 2 to 3 tablespoons) and gradually adjust accordingly.

garlic, salt, cumin, and coriander until smooth. With the motor running, slowly
drizzle in 2 tablespoons of the olive oil and mix until absorbed.
