- 1 (10-ounce) bag frozen, shelled edamame
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
- 1 1/2 teaspoons sesame oil, or to taste
- 1/4 cup or more water
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- Salt and pepper, to taste
In a large saucepan of boiling, salted water, cook edamame until tender, about 5 minutes. Drain and run under cold water to retain the bright green color.
In a food processor, blend edamame, garlic, lemon juice, sesame oil and 1/4 cup water until smooth. While the machine is running, drizzle in olive oil, adding more water if needed to reach the desired consistency. Season with salt and pepper.
For a more hummus-like variation, substitute 1/4 cup tahini for the sesame oil.
Serve with vegetables, sweet potato chips or pita chips.
