Spicy Jalapeño Edamame Hummus

Spicy Jalapeño Edamame Hummus

I haven’t felt very inspired lately. All the recipes you have seen in the last couple of weeks were ones that I had created a few weeks ago. I’ve said this before, but I have a hard time being creative when I am stressed. And this is a stressful time. But today, I got back in the kitchen to begin testing a few new recipes including this Spicy Jalapeño Edamame Hummus.

This Spicy Jalapeño Edamame Hummus is the perfect dip for crackers, veggies or pita. It has a nice kick from the jalapeño. But if you don’t like spicy stuff, leave it out! Its just as quick and easy as regular hummus because it uses frozen, shelled edameme. Its also great on a sandwich or in a wrap.

Edamame are green immature soy beans. They are really tasty and are packed with protein. I have seen them in the refrigerated aisle before, but I usually buy them frozen. This Seapoint Farms brand is what my grocery store carries. I try to have a bag of shelled edamame and edamame in the pods for various purposes.

Edamame in the pod is a great appetizer or even just an afternoon snack. It takes about 3-4 minutes to boil it and sprinkle it with some salt! The shelled edamame like we will use here is great to throw in stir fry, fried rice and sushi bowls. And to make hummus out of like I did today.

To thaw the frozen edamame, pour them into a bowl and cover them with hot water. Use water as hot as your sink will get. Let them sit for 5-10 minutes and drain.
