  • 1 pound frozen shelled edamame, thawed
  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice (from 2 lemons)
  • 2 tablespoons tahini
  • 2 medium garlic cloves, smashed
  • Coarse salt


  1. Steam edamame in a basket insert set over a pan of simmering water until tender, 8 to 10 minutes. Let cool completely.

  2. Puree edamame, 3/4 cup water, lemon juice, tahini, garlic, and 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon salt in a food processor until smooth (mixture will be slightly grainy). Transfer to a bowl, and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.

Cook's Notes

Storage: Hummus can be refrigerated for up to 2 days. Serving idea: Serve hummus with assorted crudites and breadsticks.
