Edamame Hummus

If you’re like us and can eat hummus by the spoonful (don’t judge…) then give your taste buds a little kick in 2012 with a variation on the original. Steph discovered this gem at Trader Joe’s and decided to take a go at making her own edamame hummus by scratch. It’s delish. This recipe made a batch that lasted us for weeks-even with the occasional spoonful (or five).

2 10-ounce packages of frozen edamame
2 10-ounce packages of frozen peas
1/2 cup lemon juice
2 teaspoons garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon coriander
1/4 teaspoon cumin
3/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup fresh mint, finely chopped
1/4 cup cilantro
Black pepper

Boil the edamame in a large pot until they become tender, about 3-4 minutes (we recommend using already shelled edamame to make life easy)
Once tender, transfer the edamame to a bowl of cold water
Boil the peas for about 1 minute, drain and transfer to the bowl of edamame

Using a food processor, or in our case a blender, pulse the edamame and peas until they form a purée
Transfer to a bowl and add the lemon juice, garlic, coriander and cumin

Slowly mix in the oil and stir well
Fold in the mint and cilantro, season with salt and pepper, and voila! Your very own edamame hummus.
