Want a spin on the traditional hummus? Try this edamame hummus recipe ASAP! It has the same garlicky, delicious flavors you love with a bonus of 8 grams of protein per serving.
Let’s grab our favorite dipping snacks and make a batch of this edamame hummus- quick!
What is Edamame Hummus
Edamame hummus is a yummy variation of my classic hummus recipe made with steamed soybeans instead of chickpeas. It has the same creamy texture we love but a richer flavor thanks to the combination of tahini, fresh garlic, and soy sauce.
How Many Calories Are in this Edamame Dip
Each ¼ cup serving of edamame dip has 211 calories, 7 grams of protein, 17 grams of healthy fats, and only 4 grams of net carbs.
This is a terrific nutritional profile; plus, edamame is considered a complete protein because it provides all of the essential amino acids our bodies need but can’t produce.
Edamame Hummus Ingredients
Here’s everything you need to make a batch of the best edamame hummus:
- shelled edamame: you can find these in the frozen section of your local grocery store.
- tahini: adds depth of flavor and makes great hummus
- water: gives it a smoother consistency.
- lemon juice: brightens the flavor.
- soy sauce: just a dash or two helps bring out the edamame flavor.
- garlic: fragrant and makes any hummus taste better.
- salt: enhances the other flavors.
- cumin: adds smokiness.
- ground coriander: dried and ground cilantro leaves- a little pinch goes a long way.
- olive oil: adds richness and helps the ingredients blend.
- flat-leaf parsley: just a sprinkle of fresh parsley for garnish.
How to Make Edamame Hummus
Making edamame hummus is super easy since everything gets blended in a high-speed blender or food processor until it reaches creamy perfection. Here’s how to make it:
- Prep the edamame
Steam the edamame according to package directions.
Combine the edamame, tahini, water, lemon juice, soy sauce, garlic, and spices in the food processor or blender. While processing, drizzle in the olive oil, allowing the mixture to fully combine.
Transfer the hummus to a serving bowl and top with freshly chopped parsley if using.

What Goes with Edamame Hummus
This edamame hummus tastes great with anything you’d serve with regular hummus! Enjoy it with sliced fresh vegetables, crackers, or pita bread for a substantial and healthy snack. You can also use it in place of mayonnaise in healthy wraps and sandwiches.
Easy Edamame Hummus
- 1 ½ cups frozen shelled edamame (soybeans)
- 2 tablespoons tahini
- ¼ cup water
- 3 tablespoons lemon juice about 1 lemon
- 2 teaspoons low-sodium soy sauce
- 1 clove garlic grated or mashed
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- ½ teaspoon cumin
- ¼ teaspoon ground coriander
- 3 tablespoons olive oil
- Boil edamame in salted water for 4-5 minutes, or microwave, covered for 2-3 minutes.
- In a food processor, puree the edamame, tahini, water, lemon juice, soy sauce, garlic, salt, cumin, and coriander until smooth. Then drizzle in olive oil, mixing until fully combined.
- Transfer to a medium bowl and serve.
i like cream cheeese or ranch dip
This looks yummy………our family loves French Onion dip with snacks
We like cheese slices, guacamole, hummus… Pretty much any dip on them!!
We love hummus with our crackers and also organic provalone cheese and ham! : )
Jalapeno Hummus from Whole Foods is a great dipper for those Cheddar Chia crackers – yummmm delish!
Hummus is our go-to dip for just about everything!
I love having hummus with crackers or pretzels. Sabra is my favorite brand!! I’ve never seen this brand in stores so I usually buy saltine crackers, Ritz or rold gold pretzels. I also have a tiny obsession over blue tortilla chips and garlic hummus.
Thank you for this recipe! I love edamame and hummus and I can’t wait to make this for my kiddos! Right now, I love eating cheese with crackers – nothing fancy, something like Baby Bel or Laughing Cow cheese. My little ones have started liking cheese and crackers as a snack too!
I like dipping in hummus, but I am going to make this dip – sounds yummy!
We love Sabra hummus and will enjoy eating it with these crackers. Can’t wait to try the crackers with this new recipe, too!!
My boys love guacamole and crackers!! Can’t wait to try this recipe!
We like spinach pesto dip, hummus or cheese slices.
i like cream cheese or ranch dip
Plain or Greek yogurt mixed with ranch seasoning.
Laughing Cow cheese wedges or guacamole would be awesome with those crackers, too– but this recipe sounds really great!!
Tzatziki dip with cherry tomatoes and the cheddar chia smart crackers or roasted eggplant Baba ghanoush.
Great recipe! Thank you for sharing. Honestly… our favorite dip for the crackers is just a plain old tried and true peanut butter and honey mix or peanut butter and jelly mix depending on the cracker. my son is autistic and is very particular so we really kinda get to stick to the familiar dips. i do love that i buy healthy crackers!!! 🙂
We haven’t tried these crackers yet, but can’t wait to do so. We love pairing crackers with hummus, babaganouj, or peanut butter!
We usually just dip in salsa, so I can’t wait to try this! Looks so yummy and easy to make.
Hummus is the dipping fav, but the chick pea kind. I will try this even though I cannot stand edamame on its own….
hot pepper cheese & salami
I love grapes with cheese crackers!
I would pair Bitsy’s Maple Carrot crisp crackers with cream cheese whipped with some homemade lemon curd or homemade raspberry puree for a sweeter snack or dessert. My kids love my homemade cream cheese whips with their vibrant colors! If I’m feeling fancy, I drizzle in the lemon curd or raspberry puree to create an exciting swirled whipped cream cheese! We have been away from the US for a few years and will be visiting this summer — Target is definitely on my list of places to shop at! Thanks for the opportunity and can’t wait to visit a Target and buy more Bitsy’s products!
We love homemade olive tapenade, guacamole and bean dip! Yum!
We love with homemade olive tapenade, fresh quacamole and black bean dip! Yum!
Can’t wait to try this recipe and the crackers. I’ve been looking for a healthy alternative to cheezits that my kids ask for!
I love crackers with black bean salsa dip!
Fresh guacamole is my favorite dip with any crackers! My kids prefer hummus though.
I like to make my own hummus – I used the very simple recipe on the Vitamix site (using sesame seeds instead of tahini – one less thing to store in the fridge) and after making it a few times I played around with and found that I could replace one can of the chickpeas with a can of artichokes! More veggies!
Hummus and guacamole, of course. Or just on their own. My 4year old and I can go through a box in one sitting!
I bet these crackers would go great with any of the laughing cow cheese spreads.
I am definitely going to try the dip recipe too.
Mary Kate O'Connell
Cant wait to try this hummus recipe! My son loves his “dip dip”(hummus), especially the Carrot hummus. I will have to try the Cheddar Chia Veggie ones next! We also love the ABC Sweet Potato cookies 🙂
Cheese or hummus on crackers
I love a good garlicy hummus
For an easy dip I like to grab a handful of fresh herbs from the garden- usually parsley and dill- then chop then and mix them into a bowl of Greek yogurt. Sprinkle in some garlic powder, S&P and that’s it! It’s even better after it sits for an hour. Great with Bitsy’s crackers.
I love these crackers with Cucumber dip and plain boring peanut butter 🙂 I just got some new PB with bananas and some with coconut I’m excited to try as well
Fresh chunky garlicy guacamole with these crackers!
We love homemade hummus but I also have a cauliflower dip that’s similar in taste to hummus that we love as well. My daughter loves just about anything that she can dip crackers into!

With hummus, of course!
My favorite dip to eat w/crackers is guacamole.
2 ripe avocados , onion and piece of garlic finely chopped with cubed tomato all mixed together. ..A squeeze of lime helps too and of course salt n pepper to taste.

I’ve never made green hummus, so would probably pair the crackers with regular homemade hummus if we were dipping them ;).
We found these crackers at Target recently and just LOVE them! I love hummus, spinach artichoke dip and Kerrygold’s Dubliner spreadable cheese on crackers.
Carrot sticks and cucumber slices with the dip! Crackers and regular hummus too!
The Cheddar chia veggie crackers sound like the perfect pairing for spinach and artichoke dip. We love hummus in our house so we’ll have to give this recipe a try for crackers or veggie dippers!

Hummus is always a favorite, and I love making a simple dip with plain Greek yogurt, some lemon zest and juice, salt and pepper – I set a bit aside for myself and horseradish to it (my kiddos think its too spicy, but yummmm!).
Trying the edamame recipe today! We also love dipping crackers in our homemade 4 nut butter (made of peanuts, cashews, almonds, and hazelnuts- yum)!!

We do a lot of cottage cheese in our house!
Pattie in Vermont
Our go-to dip is the classic one pint sour cream plus one packet dried onion soup mix stirred together then refrigerated for an hour before eating. A health nightmare but only used at Thanksgiving and Christmas so it probably won’t do us in. This edamame dip looks a winner. Cannot wait to try it this weekend at a picnic at the Hill Cumorah Pageant! Thanks for creating and sharing it with us.
Our favorite dip for crackers is either guacamole or hummus
