Nothing toys with my self-confidence quite like the 10 minutes before a party. Do we have enough dip? What if no one comes, and it’s just me alone with the Edamame Hummus?
One bite of this creamy, dreamy dip is all I need to dispel my fears!
You see, if no one comes to my party, that’s more creamy, garlicky, super food-studded edamame hummus for me! The two of us are going to have an excellent time together.
In all seriousness, this edamame hummus recipe would be a hit appetizer at any party, large or small, but I enjoy it just as much as a healthy snack at home.
You can add it to almost anything and receive an instant health + flavor boost in return.
It makes a tasty spread on sandwiches and veggie burgers, is scrumptious mixed with rice or roasted veggies, and of course, dipped with crunchy pita chips.
5 Star Review
“I made this today, and I am in LOVE with it! So fresh and lemony and creamy!”
— Jenny —
This hummus recipe was inspired by Trader Joe’s edamame hummus.
Years ago, I picked up a tub on a whim, and absolutely loved its fresh flavor, as well as the amount of protein it offered.
I’m not sure why it took me so long to recreate Trader Joe’s edamame hummus at home, but I’m so happy I finally did, even if my homemade version did ruin me for life.
Now, instead of asking “where can I buy edamame hummus,” I make today’s easy recipe.
It beats the pants off of any edamame hummus brand, and I’m willing to bet my last bag of pita chips that you’ll agree!
How to Make Edamame Hummus
I based my hummus recipe ingredients heavily on those Trader Joe’s uses in its edamame hummus, with one critical departure.
This is edamame hummus without tahini.
Instead of tahini, I used ripe avocados, which make the hummus even creamier and richer.
Edamame hummus is healthy, easy, and sure to delight both kids and adults alike.
What Does Edamame Hummus Taste Like?
Edamame hummus tastes like a delicious blend of buttery avocado and nutty edamame. It also has brightness from the lemon juice, a little bite from the garlic, and freshness from the cilantro.
- Edamame. You can use edamame instead of chickpeas for hummus. They help create a similar delicious consistency and add wonderful flavor. Plus, they’re incredibly good for you!
The Health Benefits of Edamame
- High protein and fiber
- Rich in antioxidants
- Packed with vitamins and minerals
- Avocado. For a majorly creamy and flavorful hummus. Avocado is rich in healthy fats and fiber, making it a nutritious addition to our dip.
- Garlic. A must-have in any homemade hummus recipe.
- Lemon. Adds wonderful brightness to the hummus.
- Cilantro. Fresh cilantro pairs perfectly with the avocado and edamame flavors.
- Olive Oil. The liquid element of our dip that also adds healthy fats and rich flavor.
- Puree all the ingredients except for the olive oil.
- Add the olive oil, continuing to blend. DIG IN!
Dietary Note + Recipe Adaptation
- To Make Vegan + Gluten Free. For those with dietary restrictions, this hummus is naturally vegan and gluten free.
- To Add Spice. I gave the hummus loads of flavor with fresh lemon, garlic, and cilantro, but if you enjoy spice, I imagine jalapeno would add a tasty kick.
- To Store. Refrigerate hummus in an airtight container with plastic pressed over the hummus’ surface for 3-5 days. It may brown slightly, but will still taste delicious.
Spread leftover hummus on a sandwich (like Salmon Burgers), add to a wrap, or add it to these Whole30 Vegetarian Power Bowls.
Recommended Tools to Make this Recipe
