Edamame Hummus

 

I first had store bought Edamame Hummus at my friend Sachi’s baby shower last year.  I have been wanting to make it for a while, but was kind of scared since my crappy blender did such a bad job with regular hummus.  That crappy blender died about a month ago and I decided to replace it with a food processor.  Moving on to Christmas, I got several cookbooks as gifts this year which I am super excited about trying out.
One of them is Vegan A Go-Go. By: Sarah Kramer.  On page 81 is the recipe I used for this Edamame Hummus.  I served it New Years Eve to our guests and everyone loved it, there was none leftover.

Ingredients:
3/4 Cup Frozen Edamame Beans, Pre-shucked
2 Cups Fresh Spinach, tightly packed
2 Cloves Garlic
1/2 Cup Tahini

1 Tbsp Braggs Liquid Amino
1-2 tsp Asian Chili-garlic sauce (or other hot sauce)
1/2 tsp Salt
1/4 tsp Black Pepper
