Edamame Hummus & Multi-Seed Crackers

Hummus Ingredients

  • 1/2 pound frozen shelled edamame (green soy beans), about 1 1/2 cups
  • 1/4 cup tahini
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly grated lemon zest
  • 1 lemon (about 3 tablespoons), juiced
  • 1 clove garlic, smashed
  • 3/4 teaspooon kosher salt

  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
  • Suggested serving: Sliced cucumbers, celery, and olives

Hummus Directions

Boil the beans in salted water for 4 to 5 minutes, or microwave, covered, for 2 to 3 minutes.

In a food processor, puree the edamame, tahini, water, lemon zest and juice, garlic, salt, cumin, and coriander until smooth. With the motor running, slowly drizzle in 2 tablespoons of the olive oil and mix until absorbed.

Transfer to a small bowl, stir in the parsley and drizzle with remaining oil. Serve with the suggested vegetables, or refrigerate, covered, up to 1 day.

 

Cracker Ingredients

1 cup of mixed seeds (we used: sunflower, flax, chia, and  black & white sesame seeds)

1/4 cup of agave nectar

2 tbsp of water (add more if needed)

Add spices of your choice (pepper, garlic, curry, onion, chili, cayenne, etc.)

Cracker Directions

Preheat oven to 300 fahrenheit.

In a medium bowl combine all ingredients in and mix well.

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and using a wet spatula flatten seed mixture (to about 1/4″ thick).

Bake in oven for about 30 mins or until crispy. (check often to asure they do not burn).

As soon as you remove crackers from the oven using either a pizza cutter or knife, cut crackers into squares. Allow crackers to cool and crisp up a little more and serve with hummus.

Enjoy! 🙂
