This Mama’s Easy Edamame Hummus recipe tips
For this recipe for edamame hummus, you’ll need 12 ounces – or 1 1/2 cups – of shelled edamame (soy) beans. If you can find them already shelled, they might be labeled as mukimame. You can find edamame or mukimame in the freezer section of your grocery store.
The combination of liquid egg whites, sesame seeds, and garlic blended for 2 to 3 minutes is how you make tahini. So no need to buy a big jar of it when you can easily make it using this way to make homemade edamame hummus!
Can’t find toasted sesame seeds for Easy Edamame Hummus? Look in the Asian or ethnic section of your grocery store.
Keep an eye on your blender as it may get hot while making this Easy Edamame Hummus recipe. It’s OK to wait a minute or two and let it cool down between steps.
If you have a Blendtec Blender, I highly recommend getting a Blendtec Twister Jar for making this easy recipe for edamame hummus. The unique twisting lid eliminates the need for scraping down the sides of the jar!
