Edamame Basil Hummus Recipe on twopeasandtheirpod.com This healthy dip is great for snacking and parties!

It’s been a hot week in Utah. So much for a slight warm up to summer. Summer weather is in full swing! We’ve been eating a little lighter this week-Greek Quinoa Salad and my favorite Chickpea & Avocado Salad Sandwich. I also made Edamame Basil Hummus from The Yummy Mummy Kitchen Cookbook by Marina Delio, one of my new favorite cookbooks. The hummus was easy to make and perfect for a light lunch.


The dip starts with edamame. I like to call it EdaMAMA:) I love that this hummus calls for ingredients that we always have on hand. We always have a bag of edamame in the freezer.


The dip also has garbanzo beans (chickpeas), garlic, basil, lemon juice, salt, pepper, and olive oil. Place all of the ingredients in a food processor and that is it! Talk about simple!

By now you should know that I have a slight, or major, obsession with green food. Well, green everything. So you know I am loving the green color! The hummus is healthy, fresh, and flavorful!

Edamame Basil Hummus is great for every day snacking or for parties! I am going to be serving this hummus at all of our BBQ’s this summer. Serve with chips, veggies, or crackers. It is also great as a sandwich spread. We enjoyed it with baked Savory Tortilla Chips-you can find the recipe on Cafe Zupas today!

Keep cooking easy and light this summer with Edamame Basil Hummus! And make sure you check out The Yummy Mummy Kitchen Cookbook for more simple and healthy recipes. The book is gorgeous. I know we will be using it all summer long!

  9. Maria,
    You didn’t steer me wrong with the avocado feta dip, so I bet this edamamA hummus is also yummy.


  10. I just bought some edamame, but didn’t have a recipe in mind. This came at the perfect time, thank you!

  11. Just had to come back and tell you we love this hummus! I made it for lunch today, and spread it on some tortillas with fresh spinach. So light and tasty. Thank you!

  12. I love hummus and edamame beans but never thought of trying them together. This looks delish. Love the green color. Thanks

  13. I made this today because I have fresh basil at home and it was so good! I added some cumin and curry powder to give it a bit more of a hummus-y flavor. Also, shelling edamame is sort of a pain, so I recommend buying it pre-shelled if you are able to.

  14. A friend told me about this recipe–fabulous! I could honestly eat it with a spoon! Thanks so much for sharing!

  15. Hi it’s me, I am also visiting this website on a regular basis, this site is really pleasant and the viewers are in fact sharing fastidious thoughts.

  16. fantastic issues altogether, you just won a new reader.
    What would you recommend in regards to your put up that you just
    made a few days ago? Any positive?

  17. This is seriously on my top 10 list of the best things I’ve ever eaten in my life. I am OBSESSED with this dip! Great recipe.

  18. Just made this for a party this weekend. It was NOT a hit. No one tried more than a bite. I served the dip with pretzel chips. and followed the recipe exactly. I just don’t think basil and hummus go together. I am planning to try the leftovers on a panini sandwich this week and will continue to search for a good hummus dip.

    I have made this recipe many times. It tastes best when first made (right out of the food processor!) Thank you for the wonderful recipe!

  20. I make this hummus ALL the time for parties or if we have friends over. I have never met anyone that doesn’t like it. Goes great with veggies and pita chips. It’s got a great, different flavor.
