Personal Trainer Recipe – Edamame and Green Pea “Hummus”

This personal trainer recipe is a deliciously chunky Dip or Spread.





1 Cup frozen Edamame (soy beans)

1/2 cup frozen Green Peas

1 or 2 cloves of garlic

1.5 teaspoons of Tahini (found in store with the peanut butters)

2 tablespoons Olive Oil

1 tablespoon of water

1/4 tsp salt (or to taste)


Boil frozen soy beans and peas (soy beans take twice as long). Strain the vegetables.



Add to a food processor with all other ingredients. If the mixture is too dry, add more water a teaspoon at a time until it is a thick chunky dip.



Serve with cut vegetables, pita bread, corn chips, or use as a spread on a crostini or as a base for a sandwich.

P.S. I had a nice piece of salmon last night and put a big blob of the hummus on top of it (as well as some “pico””) and it was divine 🙂  Here’s the pic to prove it.
