Remember when we went to Broad Street Cafe awhile ago in Durham and ate edamame hummus and died of happiness?

I done made it at home.

For realzies.  The edamame, besides adding lots of great nutrition, offer a really light texture to the hummus that you don’t get with an all-bean version.

I PROMISE you’ll love this.  Give it a whirl ASAP!

Note: I have made this with all edamame and with half beans, half edamame, and I prefer the second version.  You could try it both ways and determine which is your favorite!

Here’s what you need:

  • 1 cup shelled, cooked edamame
  • 1 can white/navy beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1/2 lemon
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 2 sprigs fresh mint
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • salt, to taste

Standard crap – you put it all in a blender or food processor and go to town!

I start with just a drizzle of olive oil and then add more as I move through the blending/tasting/blending process.

Once it tastes perfect to you, serve this with chips, pita, crackers, veggies….whatever!

It REALLY is good.  Make this one soon!
