Our meal at Sanctuary Restaurant started with an edamame hummus that was undoubtedly amazing. We both loved it and I knew we needed to recreate it at home. I was crossing my fingers that it would taste as good as the Sanctuary version!

It wasn’t nearly as good as what we had at Sanctuary (I wasn’t too surprised) but I was happy to come somewhat close. I needed some of that edamame hummus in my life. You know the feeling, right?

Edamame Hummus - makes about 1 cup

  • 1 cup cooked edamame, shelled
  • juice from one lemon
  • 2 Tbsp water
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1/4 tsp wasabi
  • salt

Blend all ingredients until smooth.

Serve with fresh bread, veggies or rice crackers.

Neither one of us tasted any wasabi in the hummus and wouldn’t have even known it was in there if the server hadn’t told us! I think it is an important flavoring component, even if you can barely taste it in there.

    You know I’ve wanted to make edamame hummus for quite some time now and still have not done it. I love the addition of wasabi to the recipe. I made regular hummus for the first time a month or so ago and was very impressed so I need to try this recipe. Random question-are you planning on going to the foodbuzz festival? I would love to meet the person behind all these amazing recipes! :-)

    I love edamame hummus! Whenever I see it on a menu I order it, but I’ve never made it myself, that will now change!
