This Edamame Hummus is made with fresh edamame, sesame, and garlic for a healthy dip that comes together in 15 minutes! It’s delicious with crackers, bread, and veggies, and has a similar texture to chickpea hummus.

This is an old recipe from the blog that has been updated to make it even better!

Edamame hummus is a dip that is just as delicious as it is pretty. Rather than making hummus with chickpeas, try making it with edamame beans instead!

The edamame gives the hummus a mild but unique flavour and is a nice little twist from the classic chickpea dip.

Edamame hummus health benefits

Edamame has fewer calories and more protein, vitamins and minerals than normal soybeans, making it a very healthy addition to anything.

Considering this dip doesn’t have much else other than some oil and seasonings, there isn’t anything else to add anything unhealthy.

How to make edamame hummus

Steam the edamame for 2-3 minutes, then add them to a food processor with the rest of the ingredients.

Tips for making this recipe perfectly

  • Use shelled edamame so you don’t have to start removing all the edamame beans from their pods. I also always recommend buying organic when it comes to soy products.
  • Use very cold water in this recipe. This will help make a smooth and creamy hummus.
  • Scrape down the sides of your food processor every minute or so while pureeing to make sure everything gets well incorporated.
  • Taste the hummus as your making it and adjust seasoning as needed if it needs a little more herbs, salt etc.
  • Store in an air-tight container in the fridge for up to a week.
