Miso Edamame Hummus

Love hummus? Want to try it in a new way? Try this edamame hummus made with miso and garlic. It’s a fresh take on an old favorite, and it’s really easy to make. You can buy shelled edamame in the freezer section. All you have to do is thaw it, boil it for four minutes, and then process it with all the other ingredients. So easy!

It tastes really bright and fresh, and is delicious either warm or cold. We used rice crackers (I highly recommend the wasabi flavor!) and cucumber slices for dipping. It’s super healthy and the edamame makes it really high in protein. Yummy taste and great nutrition are one thing but have you seen that green color?? It’s gorgeous!

Recipe adapted from My Recipes.

1 1/2 cups thawed frozen edamame, plus 1 Tbsp
2 1/2 Tbsp miso paste
2 Tbsp lemon juice
1 Tbsp olive oil
1 tsp salt
2 garlic cloves, roughly chopped
1 tsp sesame oil, garnish
2 tsp toasted sesame seeds, garnish

Bring 4 cups water to a boil. Add edamame and boil for 4 minutes. Drain and add to a food processor, along with miso paste, lemon juice, olive oil, salt, and garlic cloves. Add 1-2 Tbsp of water and blend until smooth. If necessary, add more water to achieve desired consistency. Serve topped with more edamame beans, sesame oil, and sesame seeds. We ate ours with wasabi rice crackers and cucumber sticks.

Serves 4
