Healthy Recipe: Mint & Ginger Edamame Hummus

Recipe by Leandra Rouse | Photo by Samantha Emmons 

Edamame, or immature soybeans, bring sophistication to a classic dip. Their subtle fresh flavor pops against the aromatics of the ginger and mint. Plus, they’re an excellent source of plant protein, antioxidants, and vitamin K. So, take this recipe to your next spring picnic or try it smeared on a veggie-packed sandwich. 


2 cups (11 oz/320 g) shelled edamame (hot or warm) 

1 clove garlic 

1-inch piece fresh ginger, skinned and finely chopped 

¼ cup fresh mint leaves

Juice of ½ medium lemon 

½ cup safflower oil

½ cup water

Salt and freshly ground pepper 


Add the warm edamame beans, garlic, ginger, mint, and lemon juice to a food processor. Blend until just combined maintaining a chunky consistency. In a separate bowl, mix together the safflower oil and water. Slowly add the oil and water mixture into the food processor while blending on a slow speed until combined.

If a smoother consistency is preferred, add an additional tablespoon of warm water and blend until smooth. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. 

Serve alongside rice crackers and sliced veggies, or smeared onto a sandwich. 

Makes 15 servings.
