Why Edamame?

Edamame, or young soybeans, are a nutritional powerhouse rich in protein, fiber, vitamins, and minerals. Adding edamame to your hummus not only boosts its protein content but also enhances its creamy texture and vibrant green color. Plus, edamame's mild flavor serves as the perfect canvas for infusing with other aromatic ingredients like mint and ginger, creating a harmonious blend of flavors that's both refreshing and satisfying.

The Ingredients You'll Need:

  • 1 cup shelled edamame (fresh or frozen)
  • 1 can (15 ounces) chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 3 tablespoons tahini
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger
  • ¼ cup fresh mint leaves, packed
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cumin
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Water (as needed for desired consistency)
  • Optional garnishes: additional mint leaves, sesame seeds, drizzle of olive oil


  1. Cook the Edamame: If using frozen edamame, cook according to package instructions until tender. Drain and set aside to cool.

  2. Prepare the Ingredients: In a food processor, combine the cooked edamame, chickpeas, tahini, olive oil, minced garlic, lemon juice, grated ginger, fresh mint leaves, ground cumin, salt, and pepper.

  3. Blend Until Smooth: Process the mixture until smooth and creamy, scraping down the sides of the food processor as needed. If the hummus is too thick, gradually add water, 1 tablespoon at a time, until you reach your desired consistency.

  4. Adjust Seasoning: Taste the hummus and adjust the seasoning as needed, adding more salt, pepper, lemon juice, or ginger to suit your preferences.

  5. Serve and Enjoy: Transfer the Mint & Ginger Edamame Hummus to a serving bowl and garnish with additional mint leaves, sesame seeds, and a drizzle of olive oil if desired. Serve with an array of fresh vegetables, pita bread, or crackers for dipping.
