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.
