Luck of the Irish Hummus
Irish Hummus (Edamame Hummus) is formerly Edamame Avocado Hummus. This is a fun and tasty twist on traditional hummus. It takes only 10 minutes to prepare and is sure to become a household hearty snack recipe and appetizer.
In all fairness, this Irish Hummus recipe is made with Edamame and it would be a hit as an appetizer at any party, simple or elegant party, and yet I enjoy it as a healthy snack at home just as much. You can put it in almost anything and get an instant health and mouthfeel boost. It’s delicious on vegan burgers, sandwiches, mixed with rice or cooked veggies, and, of course, dipped in crunchy potato chips.
What Is Edamame?
Edamame is a young, green soybean that is picked when it is still green. As a result, edamame is soft and edible, rather than hard and dry like mature soybeans used to make tofu and soy milk. Edamame is high in fiber, antioxidant-rich, high-protein, and low-carbohydrate, minerals and vitamins abound.
Irish Hummus Method
With one critical exception, I based my hummus recipe ingredients heavily on those used in Trader Joe’s edamame hummus.
- This is tahini-free edamame hummus.
- I used ripe avocados instead of tahini, which makes the hummus even creamier and richer.
- Edamame hummus is nutritious, simple, and sure to please both children and adults.
How Does Irish Hummus Taste?
Irish hummus is a delectable combination of buttery avocado and nutty edamame. The lemon juice adds brightness, the garlic adds a little bit, and the cilantro adds freshness.
Recipe Note and Adjustment
- To make it gluten-free and vegan. This hummus is naturally vegan and gluten-free, making it ideal for those with dietary restrictions.
- To spice things up. I flavored the hummus with garlic, fresh lemon, and cilantro, but if you like spice, I assume jalapeno would be a tasty addition.
Store hummus in the refrigerator for 3-5 days in a sealed jar with plastic pressed over the surface. It may turn slightly brown, but it will still taste nice.
Instead of searching for “where can I buy Irish Hummus,” I make today’s simple recipe.
