If you love hummus and you love cilantro, then you’re going to LOVE this Easy Edamame Hummus. It’s packed with cilantro, lime and a little kick! It’s higher in protein than traditional hummus thanks to one special ingredient – edamame!
I go through phases with hummus. Certain times I absolutely love it, want to swim in it (kidding), and can’t get enough. Other times I don’t even want to look at it, and spreading it on anything or dipping something into it doesn’t sound tasty whatsoever. I don’t know, I’m complicated.
Right now I’m in a hummus-loving phase. I’m dipping veggies and crackers into it, spreading it on sandwiches, even tossing my salads with it instead of dressing (you need to try this!). Only time can tell when I’ll be off the hummus again so I’m taking advantage while I can.
I’m not a plain hummus kind of gal. I love the flavoured kinds and in my eyes, the more flavour the better. My favourites include roasted garlic and roasted red pepper, and most recently I’m hooked on easy edamame hummus.
I first tried edamame hummus from the grocery store when we were looking for a new flavour to try and this one stood out to me. I think it was labelled something like “chickpea and edamame hummus with a hint of cilantro”. I love anything cilantro so you know that was going in my cart.
After that, I was hooked and decided to try and make my own at home.
How to Make Easy Edamame Hummus:
The process of making edamame hummus is no different than making regular hummus. The base ingredients are the same, except you swap half the amount of chickpeas that I’d usually use for edamame beans.
I also added cilantro because hello, cilantro. Then I switched out traditional lemon juice for some zesty lime juice. I did this mainly because I didn’t have any lemon juice on hand at the time, but I also thought it would pair nicely with the cilantro. Not to toot my own horn, but I was right. It’s delicious!
Ingredients for Edamame Hummus:
So all you need for this recipe is a handful of simple ingredients and a food processor or high-speed blender, either will work. The ingredients needed are:
You can totally make this hummus your own by adding more/less sriracha/lime juice/cilantro. You may also need more water depending the appliance you’re using and how you like your hummus. Lord knows some of you take your hummus game seriously.
Tips For Making This Recipe:
The only other tip for you that I have is to let the hummus blend. Don’t be afraid to process/blend it for a solid 10 minutes or so total. You really want to achieve that smooth, creamy consistency and sometimes that takes a little patience!
Otherwise, this recipe is simple, easy and quick to make! Prep it over the weekend and chop some veggies to have for easy snacks all week long. Lately I’ve just been grabbing my tub of hummus and my container of chopped veggies so I can snack when cooking dinner, because your girl gets hangry.
Enjoy this fresh, flavourful recipe! It’s perfect to serve a crowd – whether you’re hosting or bringing something along as a guest. Serve it on a platter with vegetables and crackers to wow your friends and family. Or just enjoy it on the couch at home because I do that too.
