Edamame Hummus

We love hummus at our house. This recipe is a scrumptious and refreshing twist on an old favorite, and it's a wonderful way to incorporate healthy soy into our diets. —Marla Clark, Albuquerque, New Mexico

Test Kitchen tips
  • Edamame—soybeans that are harvested early, before the beans become hard—are a popular Asian food. The young beans are parboiled and frozen to retain their freshness. Look for them in the freezer section of grocery and health food stores.
  • Known as a good source of fiber, protein, calcium and vitamin C, edamame are a tasty addition to soups, salads and main dishes. They are also delicious eaten alone as a healthy snack.

      I was excited to try this recipe because I really like edamame. Unfortunately, I didn't care for this hummus. I found the texture kind of "mealy". I didn't have mint but otherwise made it as written.

      This was really a great and easy recipe! I omitted the mint and jalapeño, instead adding some piñon (roasted pine nuts) while processing and then sprinkling whole piñon over the top and drizzling on a little olive oil. Served with pita wedges and wheat crackers. It was a definite hit!
