You know that person, right? The one who would eat chickpea hummus all day long. Maybe that person is you? Well, sometimes you gotta mix it up, which is when we turn to this Toasted Garlic Edamame Hummus.
for garnish (optional)
Heat oil in a small saucepan over medium heat. Add garlic and cook, swirling occasionally, until toasted and fragrant. Remove from heat to cool slightly.
Place edamame in food processor and pulse until smooth. Scrape down sides of processor and add a generous pinch of salt. Add the cooled oil, garlic, lemon juice, tahini or almond butter, and pulse until smooth.
Add water and pulse until mixture is airy and smooth. Add chives and pulse until evenly incorporated. Taste and season with salt as desired. Garnish with sesame seeds, if using, and/or additional chives or scallions. Serve with crackers or assorted raw vegetables.
Store refrigerated in an airtight container for up to 7 days. If making ahead of time, leave out the chives and stir in when ready to serve.
