Author Notes: I must confess that I am not a bean lover. It’s definitely a texture thing. I could gladly eat green beans any day, but when it comes to navy or kidney or (God forbid) lima, I nearly gag at the thought of it. And garbanzo beans are no exception. So imagine my elation when I discovered the glory and splendor that is edamame!
Eda-who, you say?
A wonderful little soybean, the delicious legume is chocked full of fiber, protein and vitamins/minerals. But best of all, it has a different texture than the aforementioned beans, and makes one heck of a good hummus! Beware that this recipe does include raw garlic though, so be sure to carry gum with you! —Sherry K-Jazzy Gourmet
Food52 Review: More please! In my household, all new recipes are rated as tried with a check mark, check plus for those worth tweaking and trying again, and check plus plus for those that will be made again and again. This particular recipe is a definite check plus plus. I followed instructions and got great results. What a great way to make a healthy dip or place alongside fish for a full meal. We ate this well-blended and scooped up with wheat crackers. Thank you, Sherry K-Jazzy Gourmet for introducing my family to this new hummus! —Jenya
