I could eat hummus pretty much everyday. I love that there are so many great varieties of hummus. I’ve seen roasted beet, toasted pine nut, garlic, cilantro and lime, and of course, one of my favorites, edamame hummus. I got hooked on this stuff after trying some out from Trader Joe’s and I decided to make one of my own. And the pistachios? Well, it seemed only fitting to add them, since I always associate “green” with pistachios and edamame has such a nice green color. But my favorite part of this recipe is the fact that it’s so ridiculously easy!

Add the tahini, edamame, pistachios, olive oil, garlic cloves, lemon juice, lemon zest, parsley, sea salt, and coriander in a food processor or blender. Process on high until blended smooth. This mixture will form into a ball so you may need to break it up and spread it out with a spoon, and then blend it one more time. This will make sure everything is blended nicely.

  • Question. Should the edamame be steamed before using?

    • Hi Nancy, the edamame should be cooked so I guess yes, most likely steamed. If you buy them frozen, you can just make sure they are thawed before throwing them in. =)

  • What a fantastic idea! I would have never thought of combining edamame and pistachios. They’re two of my favorite ingredients so I’m sure I’d love this!

    • Thanks Sharon!! I love the flavors in this recipe- edamame and pistachios are a couple of my favorites too! Hope you enjoy! =)
