Green Edamame & Peas Hummus

Recipe from Pick-Up-Limes

Makes 2 small jam jars

Ingredients for making hummus:

1. 1 cup (150 g) frozen edamame
2. 1 cup (130 g) frozen peas
2. 3 TBS cup water
3. Juice of 1/2 lemon
4. 3 TBS (30 ml) tahini (I like to make this myself)
5. 1 TBS (15 ml) olive oil
6. 2 cloves garlic
7. Pinch of salt

For cooking edaamane:
1. 1 litre of water for every 100 g of dried chickpeas


1. Bring to boil a pot of water. Add edamame and peas and, or according to package instructions, then drain.

2. Discard water and let cool and immediately run cold water to help the food retain its green color.

3. Place all ingredients in a food processor or high power blend and blend on high for 1 minute. Stop to scrape down the sides as needed. Blend once more until it becomes as creamy as you'd like it, stopping to scrape down the sides as needed. I start with using the dessert setting, and use the tamper to scrap off the side. When the dessert program is done, I give it another cycle using the speed dial. I start with Speed 1, and gradually move to Speed 2 and Speed 3 and blend for another 45 seconds.

4. Taste and adjust with more tahini or more lemon juice.

5. Serve and enjoy :-)


Can be kept for 5 days in an air-tight container.

I really like the recipes from Pick up Limes. I tried out this hummus recipe, and it's perfect.

 Now it's done :-)

Enjoy it as spread on sandwich or...

as a dipping sauce to carrot sticks :-)
