Everyone loves hummus, but throwing some edamame in there makes it even better. Hummus is great for vegans and vegetarians, because it has a ton of protein. But no one can really resist it, not even meat eaters! This edamame hummus tastes almost like a deconstructed falafel, and anyone who tries it once will be asking you for the recipe.


  1. If you’re using frozen edamame, defrost 1/2 pound of them in the microwave or by boiling them on the stove.
  2. Add them to a food processor along with 1/4 cup of tahini paste and water, the zest and juice of one whole lemon, 1 clove of garlic, 3/4 teaspoon of salt, 1/2 teaspoon of cumin, and 1/4 teaspoon of coriander.
  3. Start the food processor and while it runs, slowly drizzle in olive oil. Don’t add more than 2 tablespoons and try to do it as slowly as you can.
  4. Keep the food processor going until it’s completely smooth.
  5. Once you’ve achieved that consistency, you can serve it right away with another drizzle of olive oil on top, along with some chopped parsley or even some zaatar seasoning.
  6. If you want to save the hummus for later, it can be stored for 1-2 days in a airtight container in the fridge.
