Edamame Hummus

This edamame puree is amazing, so much better than any hummus recipe that I’ve tried!  I love the delicate flavor.  I tried a version of it earlier today at a restaurant.  I was so enamored, I had to come home and make it right away!  This is my version and I think it tastes just like the original!  At the restaurant, this puree was served with deep fried wonton chips.  Yum!  But if you are looking for a healthier meal, you can do as I did at home: serve with cut up veggies (carrots, cucumbers, cherry tomatoes, whatever you like).  I also really like dipping edamame pods before I scrape the beans out.

Ingredients:

10 oz shelled frozen edamame, cooked to package directions

Juice of 1/2 medium/small lemon

1 very small garlic clove

fleur de sel to taste (optional, but in my mind, edamame needs salt, nutritarian diet or not!)

Water as necessary to create consistency desired (I used 6 Tbls).

Method:

I’m giving the directions for using a food processor below.  However, if you are lucky enough to own a food mill (I’ll be buying one as soon as we are in our new house!) use it instead, as you will get a super creamy and light consistency, just like the restaurant served.

If using a food processor, add all ingredients and process until smooth.  Add water as necessary to create a smooth paste of the consistency you want.  I used 6Tbls water for mine.

Although it is good served warm or cold, try it while it is still warm, it is my favorite way to enjoy this puree!  Enjoy!
