Recipe makes: 2-4 servings of 2 tablespoons per person)
1½ c. frozen shelled edamame
Juice of 1 lemon
2 tbs. olive oil
1 clove garlic
½ tsp. black pepper
½ tsp. cumin
Equipment and supplies:
Blender or food processor
Cook edamame in a pot of boiling water for about 5 minutes. Drain.
Place edamame, lemon juice, olive oil, garlic, pepper, and cumin into the bowl of a food processor or blender. Process until smooth, about 5 minutes, stopping halfway through to scrape down the side of the bowl. If necessary, add a little water to loosen up the hummus a bit.
Sprinkle with extra cumin for garnish. Serve with fresh cut-up vegetables — try carrots, bell peppers, celery, and broccoli — for dipping.
