Edamame Hummus


pre blended

Trisha really missed the mark on this one.  In my opinion a true hummus must contain tahini.  I added extra cayenne, cumin, and even lime juice to give it more zip, but this recipe just didn’t do it for me.  The only thing I really liked was the pretty bright green hue that didn’t brown.

Here is the link for more instructions, but I would avoid this one unless you’re into bland blended edamame beans.

Pinch salt and pepper

1/4 cup fresh lime juice (about 2 limes)
1/4 cup finely chopped fresh cilantro
Pita chips, for dipping

Next post is very exciting…cooking with dice (yes thats right dice)
