Hummus and veggies - the snack option on almost every healthy eating post out there.  We get it. BORING. Time to switch it up a little by substituting some of those chickpeas for edamame beans.

Edamame Hummus

Prep time:  10 mins
Cook time:  5 mins
Total time: 15 mins
Yield: Serves 8 as an appetizer


  • 1 cup canned chickpeas (drained and rinsed)
  • 1.5 cups shelled and cooked edamame beans
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • Juice of 2 lemons
  • Zest of 1 lemon
  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • ¾ teaspoon honey
  • ¾ teaspoon ground coriander
  • ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • sea salt to taste

Combine all ingredients in a food processor and blend until smooth. Save a few edamame for garnish along with a drizzle of olive oil and a sprinkle of cayenne. We served ours with the best looking vegetables we could find from the farmers market along with some pita chips.
