    15 min

    Frozen edamame soya beans replace the chickpeas in this untraditional spin on a traditional hummus. Tahini, garlic, fresh coriander and lemon juice add plenty of flavour, too.

    This was so fantastic! I might not have added quite a 1/2 cup cilantro packed, but other than that I made it exactly as shown and my guests just raved about it. No one felt guilty about dipping away. Even non-cilantro lovers didn't notice at all and sucked it down before I could tell them what was in it! Thank you for a fabulous recipe we can feel good about serving.  -  27 Mar 2012  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Fabulous recipe! Incredibly simple to make and so delicious! I served it with pita chips and crudites. My guests loved it and almost everyone asked for the recipe!  -  29 Mar 2012  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I didn't realize that soybeans came shelled or unshelled, so used 1/2 of a 28 oz. bag of unshelled beans, cooked them, and put the seeds into the blender. Instead of 1/2 cup tahini, I just used 1/2 cup sesame seeds. I did not add salt. This makes a pretty color green hummus! Great taste!  -  17 Mar 2012  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
