Edamame Hummus

This is my sixth hummus recipe, so I guess you could say I'm a hummus junkie. Unfortunately, hubby is not a hummus fiend, like me, so when I saw this edamame hummus from Ali Girl Cooks I waited until we had people over to make it.
I didn't get more than a couple of bites of this hummus because everyone gobbled it up. It's super savory with the flavors of cilantro, spice, and of course edamame. Since edamame is a major part of the Japanese diet, I am very excited I'll have access to it once we move and still be able to make this delicious hummus!

2 cups edamame, thawed and shelled
4 tablespoons tahini
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon coriander
1 teaspoon cumin
Juice of one lemon
1/2 cup cilantro
4 tablespoons olive oil
Place all of the ingredients except for the olive oil in a food processor. Pulse to combine, using a spatula to scrape down the sides before running the food processor and streaming in the olive oil. 
If needed add 2-4 tablespoons of water to loosen up the mixture. Garnish with cilantro leaves and serve with pita chips, tortilla chips, or fresh veggies.


  1. I love this unique hummus recipe. It looks very tasty to me.

  2. Great idea! My edamame has been in the freezer for a month... great way to use them all up! Thanks for sharing dear!

  3. I love this idea, we love hummus & edamame in my house.

  4. Love both Hummus and Edamame so this would be a winner for me! The only thing that might get annoying is shelling the edamame, may need to look for some that are already shelled!

  5. There is cumin in the picture, but it's not in the recipe. Is it supposed to be? If so, how much?

  6. Hi Angela, thanks for noticing! I will update the recipe, but I think I used about 1 teaspoon of cumin! :)
