i’m a snacker. i eat all day long: chopped fruit, light salads, crackers or veggies and dip, granola, cheese made with goat’s or sheep’s milk. hummus is one of my go-to healthy snacks, but up until now i’ve stuck to the standard varieties: plain, roasted pine nut, or roasted pepper. but trader joe’s makes a great edamame hummus that pairs perfectly with mulitgrain soy sauce rice crackers for homemade sushi night. and since i find great joy in making things myself, i created a copycat version that takes hardly any time to prepare.
// I N G R E D I E N T S // makes about 3 cups
2 cloves garlic, peeled
1 package trader joe’s shelled edamame, cooked
2-3 tbs olive oil (or sub sesame oil)
juice of 1/2 lemon
1/4 – 1/2 cup water
sesame seeds, to taste
// P R O C E S S //
give garlic a quick whirl in a large food processor.
add in cooked edamame, olive oil, and lemon juice, and process until smooth. add water as needed to achieve desired consistency.
top with sesame seeds for garnish (i also blended a few sprinkles in for good measure).
serve with multigrain soy sauce rice crackers or other favorite dipper.
