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 212 calories, 9 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.

My 3 year old thinks that edamame is the BEST! I am going to have to try this dip on her. Thanks. We like to eat crackers with a bit of cheese, apples or grapes and cherry tomatoes.
I love eating crackers with my reflux-friendly hummus…mashed chickpeas, a little olive oil, and a little salt topped with a cucumber. Yum! Of course my family just loves cheese and crackers!
Homemade artichoke hummus!
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!
Yum!!! I go with hummus or guacamole for dipping 🙂
We love crackers with hummus or guacamole. We will definitely try this recipe.
My kids love hummus and we would pair with homemade hummus or guacamole! Will def be making this one with my little ones. Thanks for the giveaway!
My favorite dip with crackers is rainbow salsa, tons of color and good for you
My favorite dip is guacamole. Home made and chunky. I like it with crackers, chips, carrots.
Our favorite “dips” for crackers would be: goat cheese, hummus, and guacamole!
We love dipping our veggies in hummus. Never tried crackers – will have to give these a try. Win win for us, we love edamame too!
Either hummus or some sort of cheese. We’ve never tried this brand of crackers, but I can’t wait too now!
Hummus! Can’t wait to try this new version of hummus.
I make a homemade ham salad that’s quick and easy in the food processor. Even though we make it for sandwiches, it makes a great dip for crackers!
We just discovered a cilantro almond “hummus”. It could also be called dinosaur dip! Looking forward to trying yours soon!
Hummus! absolutely our favorite, can’t wait to try this recipe.
I love to eat these with ranch dressing while also snacking on carrots and cucumbers.
