Servings 2 1/2 cups


  • 1 cup frozen shelled edamame
  • 1 cup frozen peas
  • 1/3 cup tahini
  • 3 Tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 2 garlic cloves, roughly chopped
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 3 Tablespoons water
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • Chopped flat-leaf parsley, for garnish
  • Assorted crudité or crackers, for serving


  • Bring a medium pot of salted water to a boil. Add the edamame and cook just until tender, 3 to 5 minutes. Remove the edamame to a colander. Return the water to a boil, add the peas, and cook just until tender, about 1 minute. Transfer the peas to the colander with the edamame to drain.
  • In the bowl of a food processor, pulse together the edamame, peas, tahini, lemon juice, garlic, cumin, water and salt until smooth, scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed.
  • With the motor running, drizzle in the olive oil and continue processing until the mixture is a smooth pureé. Taste the hummus and season with additional salt and pepper. Transfer the hummus to a bowl, top with chopped parsley and serve immediately with assorted crudité or crackers.
