  1. In a food processor throw in the garlic cloves to mince.
    1. TIP #1 – If you do not have a food processor but instead will be using a good quality blender, pre-mince your garlic to ensure you don’t get left with large chunks. Raw garlic can be a bit much.
    2. TIP #2: It’s important to use fresh garlic and not jarred garlic, or you will get an aftertaste from the brine they used. Remember, this is basically a raw dip so anything you put in, will be tasted.
  2. Add the whole bag of defrosted Edamame and blend until creamy. It wont be smooth just yet.
    1. Tip #3 – If you don’t defrost the Edamame, it will be very chunky and water logged, forcing you to add extra water and/or oil to get it to smooth out. It would seem ok now, but later you’ll end up with a water or overly oiled product.
  3. Toss in 2 oz. of the Green Sauce into the food processor to begin to develop the flavors of the hummus.
  4. Once fully blended, check the consistency. It will be a bit tight.
  5. At this point, add a little bit of water and then pulse to get it to loosen and smooth. Repeat until desired texture.
  6. Once you’ve achieved a nice smooth texture, taste it! You may want to add a little more olive oil to give it that depth of flavor. You’ve added a whole lot of natural green goodness, so a little healthy fat will bring it together.
  7. The same goes for salt.
    1. Tip #4 I exclusively use sea salt. It taste better, is unprocessed and is better for you. If you have a lemon infused salt, go for it! 
  8. If you want a little more flavor, add a little extra green sauce before you take it out of the food processor/blender and pulse one last time.
  9. Once it’s perfectly combined and seasoned, pour into a bowl and then dollop the remaining green sauce over the top right in the center.You can then dip through the green sauce into the Edamame for a perfectly combined bite every time.
