Edamame Hummus

Edamame Hummus

One of my favorite summer activities is a picnic in the park, and I'm always saving ideas for the perfect picnic food.  This simple recipe mixes two favorite snacks into one - edamame and hummus!  I love it served with pita chips at a potluck picnic or summer party.  It also makes a healthy afternoon snack when combined with veggies.  It's super easy to whip up and much more exciting than the basic store bought variety.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups frozen shelled edamame
  • 3/4 cup tahini
  • 1/4 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 1/2 tsp lemon rind, grated
  • 2 cloves garlic, grated
  • 1 tbsp water
  • 1 tbsp olive oil (plus extra for drizzling)

Boil edamame according to directions on package.  Drain and let cool.  Once cool, combine all ingredients in a food processor.  Pulse until smooth.  Serve with a drizzle of olive on top.
