Recipe: Edamame Hummus

Try a new take on a traditional favorite

Soy beans, also known as edamame, can help reduce bad cholesterol levels which are directly related to an increased risk of heart disease. They are also a great source of protein, rich in fiber, vitamin K and antioxidants.

Ingredients

(Serves 4)

  • 240g tahini
  • 75ml lemon juice (2 or 3 lemons)
  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 medium garlic clove, roughly chopped
  • ½ teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 25g fresh cilantro leaves
  • 230g shelled edamame
  • 2 to 4 tablespoons water

Instructions

  1. In a food processor or blender, combine the tahini, lemon juice, olive oil, garlic and salt. Blend for about 1½ minutes, pausing to scrape down the sides as necessary.
  2. Add the cilantro and process for 1 minute until the mixture is nice and smooth.
  3. Add half of the edamame and 2 tablespoons of water into to the food processor and process for 1 more minute.
  4. Add the remaining edamame and process until the hummus is smooth. If your hummus is too thick, add a little more water and blend again until you achieve the desired consistency.
