Edamame Hummus

by Amie on July 21, 2009

This recipe is on the agenda for tonight…I just bought a nice big bag of frozen edamame and I cannot wait to make this tasty hummus! I enjoy this hummus as a spread on my wraps, sandwiches, pitas, muffins, and nori, as a topping on my salads, baked fish and eggs and as a dip for my crackers and raw veggies. There are endless ways to enjoy this delicious and healthy hummus…get creative and have fun by opening up your fridge and cabinets to see what you have in the house…you just may find a new way to enjoy edamame  outside of your favorite sushi restaurant!  I assure you–you will!



  • 1 cup frozen edamame
  • 2 Tbsp. lemon juice
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1/3 cup water
  • Nu-Salt, to taste


  • Steam edamame for about 10 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool.
  • In a medium-sized bowl, combine edamame, lemon juice, garlic, oil and a dash of Nu-Salt in a food processor.  Pulse for several minutes; stir occasionally.  Add the water slowly and continue to pulse.
  • Enjoy as a dip for your favorite vegetables or as a spread in lieu of mayonnaise on sandwiches, pitas and muffins.

Thanks Holly…Nu-Salt is a Salt-Free product that tastes just like salt but has ’0′ Sodium…it’s great and I enjoy using it on many of my meals…give it a try and let me know your thoughts.
Have a great day and thanks for your comment.
