Edamame Hummus Recipe:

Recipe Type: Appetizer, Hummus, Lemons
Yields: 3 cups
Prep time: 20 min


1/2 pound frozen shelled Edamame beans (green soy beans), about 1 1/2 cups
1/4 cup Tahini (sesame seed paste), room temperature*
1/4 cup water
1/2 teaspoon freshly-grated lemon zest
3 tablespoons fresh-squeezed lemon juice
1 clove garlic, smashed
3/4 teaspoon coarse salt
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. To purchase Sesame Tahini, check out What's Cooking America's Cooking Store.
