How To Make Edamame Hummus

Hummus is traditionally made with chickpeas. But you have to try this edamame hummus with crisp veggies or crackers for a tasty and healthy snack.

Preparation: 20 minutes
Total: 20 minutes



  • cuptahini
  • cuplemon juice(about 2 to 3 lemons)
  • 3tsbpolive oilextra-virgin, plus more for garnish
  • 1mediumgarlic roughly chopped
  • ½tspfine-grain sea salt
  • ½cuplightly packed fresh cilantro leaves(plus more for garnish)
  • cupsshelled edamame10 ounces, preferably organic, defrosted if frozen
  • 4tsbpwateras necessary
  • sesame seedsfor garnish, optional


  1. In the bowl of your food processor or high-powered blender (i.e. Vitamix or Blendtec), combine the tahini, lemon juice, olive oil, garlic and salt. Process for about 1½ minutes, pausing to scrape down the sides and base of the bowl as necessary, until the mixture is well blended.

  2. Add the cilantro and process for about 1 minute, pausing to scrape down the bowl as necessary, until the herbs have blended into the mixture and the mixture is nice and smooth.

  3. Add half of the edamame to the food processor, plus 2 tablespoons water, and process for 1 minute. Scrape down the bowl, then add the remaining edamame and process until the hummus is thick and quite smooth, about 1 to 2 minutes more.

  4. Taste and blend in additional salt if the hummus doesn’t taste awesome yet. Scrape the hummus into a small serving bowl.

  5. Lightly drizzle olive oil over the top and sprinkle with some additional cilantro leaves and a few sesame seeds, if desired. Leftover hummus keeps well, chilled, for 4 to 6 days.

Recipe Notes


If your hummus is too thick or chunky, run the food processor while drizzling in 1 to 2 tablespoons more water, as necessary, until it reaches your desired consistency.
