- Ready In:
- 3⁄4 cup boiled edamame, shells removed
- 1 cup frozen chopped spinach (1 small package)
- 1 (12 ounce) can garbanzo beans, drained
- 6 garlic cloves (this can be very strong, if you have an aversion to STRONG garlic taste, reduce the garlic!)
- 1⁄2 cup tahini
- 1⁄4 - 1⁄2 cup olive oil (I usually add the amount I need to get the consistency right)
- 2 teaspoons sea salt (about)
- 1 tablespoon red pepper flakes (I love these(but they make the hummus VERY HOT) (optional)
- Combine all in food processor.
- Add olive oil (water, or the "juice" of the garbanzo beans, if you wish)--either of these reduce fat to desired consistency.
- This is EVEN better leftover.

I can't believe I haven't rated this yet. I made this last year for a party and it was a big hit. Last night I had a craving for it and whipped up a batch. I used half the amount of oil and made up the difference with the liquid from the chick peas. I also added a tablespoon of lemon juice. I had roasted some garlic earlier and used that instead of raw garlic. It was so good, I had trouble stopping myself from eating it all right then. I ended up having a good sized dollop of it on top of some brown rice for supper. Yum.
so....I wanted to make something different tonight....and knew I had a bag of edamame in the freezer, so searched recipes for it....I used the IDEA from this recipe....what I came up with was a bit different...and soooo good. first, I boiled the edamame, then put it in my food processor with a can of drained spinach and 3 cloves of garlic, added EVOO, a splash of lemon juice, a pinch of salt, and some green chile hot sauce I had in the spice rack....it was sooo good!! I spreaded that mixture on mine and hubby's plates....then topped it with some tuna mixed with fire roasted tomatoes, chopped celery, and a BIT of miracle whip.....WOW was it GOOOOOOD!!!! maybe I'll write it out seperately on this site!!! :)
