Wow, really delicious. I didn't bother with lemon zest and ran out of lemon juice so I added some lime juice. I also added some red pepper flakes and cayenne for heat. I bought fresh edamame from Trader Joe's so I didn't bother cooking it...just took it out of the package and pureed it. I think I like this better than regular hummus!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
what is the serving size? item not reviewed by moderator and published
I thought it was quite tasty. I like others, cut back on the oil. I did not want the extra calories and I like the texture of it like this. I used leeks instead of garlic. I increased the lemon and added cilantro. Simple, easy, healthy and flavorful. Great along side eggs in the morning, nice snack and good with fish too. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I agree, this was too bland, even after increasing the lemon juice and zest, garlic and salt. I think cayenne and/or cilantro would help. And yes, add scads more olive oil - remember, it's a GOOD fat. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Great recipe! I prefer low fat, so I didn't use any olive oil at all. It has good flavor and texture. I'll definitely make this again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
The recipe as written, I found, to be rather bland. It's REALLY dry. Do add more olive oil to achieve the consistency that you like most. I added three cloves of garlic in the beginning as I like a more pronounced flavor. Other than that, I followed the recipe and found that I needed to add more salt, cumin, coriander and, as indicated above, ALOT more olive oil. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Delicious! I used 1/8 c. tahini per one of the commenter's suggestion, and I only used 1 tsp olive oil instead of 3 tbsp. I also added, per another comment, 1 tsp wheat free tamari (I have Celiac and need to eat gluten free and a pinch of wasabi powder. I'm noshing on it right now with Mary's Gone Crackers. Yum!!! Gonna post about this on my gluten free diva blog. Ellen Allard item not reviewed by moderator and published

Not only do I get asked for this recipe all the time, but my 18 month old would eat this by the spoonful if I let her. It is a great way to get her to eat more vegetables. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Make recipe as described, Serve thin slices of Focacio bread, Great! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Hummus is a favorite of just about every party. This one wasn't too different than your standard hummus, so to increase the "Asian element" and make it stand out, I added a teaspoon of soy sauce and wasabi paste, and instead of parsley I threw a few leaves of cilantro in the food pro before mixing. Dressed it up a little bit. Give it a try. item not reviewed by moderator and published
A friend of mine had asked me if I could make her some EDAMAME HUMMUS. No problem, thinking this isn't for me. I could barely give it to her, it was GREAT! Will make agian, but this time not to share! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I have tried it so many times. It is delicious and healthy. I usually add a little more lemon juice. Great for parties item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made this for a recent gathering of friends, and should have doubled the recipe--it was GONE before everyone even got there. Even the guests who aren't very fond of hummus raved about the wonderful flavor! Two points: make sure that you have a strong blender, and be careful that you don't drop lemon pips into it (whoops!!) item not reviewed by moderator and published

I was a bit disappointed by this recipe. It didn't have a lot of flavor although I added sauteed onion and some extra garlic to it. The taste definitely improved by the second day, but still a bit bland. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Oh my gosh! This was a huge hit when I brought it to a party. You can't go wrong with it! Yum, yum, yum! Easy to make too. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made it for my family and they loved it! They have all asked for the recipe to make on their own. I made this with the black bean hummus recipe and a chick pea hummus and placed in a three sectioned dish - it was terrific! item not reviewed by moderator and published
