Let’s be honest, no one likes to cook in the summertime. Not even me.

We want to eat dishes that keep us, and our kitchens, cool. Big flavor, yet very little time and effort. Meals that make the most of seasonal produce… Meals that keep us in shape for swimsuit season.

It has a light creamy texture from the avocado, a bright acidic pop from fresh lime juice, and herby notes from thai basil and garlic. You can even add a serrano pepper for spicy heat, if you like.

The underlying edamame flavor gently brings all these elements together to dazzle your tastebuds.

Simply place all the ingredients in the food processor and puree until smooth. The consistency is smooth and creamy, yet dense. You can add additional liquid for a thinner hummus that is easier to spread.

    I’ve never made anything with edamame but this recipe looks great. Probably a stupid question, but you use uncooked edamame?

      Hi Melanie!

      That’s not stupid at all… When you buy the edamame in the freezer section it is already cooked. :)

    I get bored of regular hummus, so I was happy to try this green hummus out for a change. It tastes so fresh! Even my husband who is funny about green foods liked it. Thanks again, three winners so far this week. I appreciate all you do!
