When Isabel our fearless #SundaySupper leader posted the theme for #SundaySupper this week I was torn.
Apparently it is football season again and supposedly you do this thing called tailgating while watching football.
I don’t know, I’ve never done it. I don’t like football. I know I’m a bad American. The only reason I ever ended up at a football game in high school was because I had to – I was in marching band. Even then we cheered for the waterboy – he was a member of the band!
So I don’t like football, I’ve never been tailgating, yet I had a great recipe in my arsenal. See my reasons for being torn on whether to join or not?
I eventually joked that my version of tailgating was waiting on the rush line for Broadway tickets!
Right back to the recipe – so my original intention was to make a puree of edamame.
I had a bag of fresh edamame from my CSA – and after blanching, peeling and weighing them, all I ended up with was 2.5 ounces of soybeans.
Hubs to rescue suggested, why not mix the edamame with chickpeas? Why hello? What a genius idea! Technically we still have edamame hummus, it is just hummus with edamame mixed in!
- 1 15oz can chickpeas, drained, liquid reserved
- 2.5 - 3oz fresh or frozen edamame (if using fresh blanch the pods for 3 minutes and remove first before using)
- 2 cloves roasted garlic* see note*
- juice from 1 lemon
- 1 teaspoon cumin
- ½ teaspoon salt
- ½ teaspoon pepper
- ¼ cup olive oil
- 3-4 tablespoons reserved chickpea liquid
- Assorted vegetables and pitas to serve
- In the bowl of your food processor place the chickpeas, edamame, roasted garlic and pulse until it forms a paste.
- Add the lemon juice, cumin, salt and pepper and with the motor running drizzle in the olive oil. Add the reserved chickpea liquid until you achieve your desired consistency.
- If you want a thinner hummus you may want to add more liquid.
- Refrigerate until ready to serve.
- Can be made in advance, which I suggest as it develops the flavors in the hummus.
- Serve with assorted vegetables and warm pitas.
Roasting garlic is very simple and it adds a little sweetness to your hummus. Simply pre-heat your oven to 400 degrees F. and cut off the top end of your garlic (leaving the root intact) exposing your garlic. Place in a large piece of aluminum foil and drizzle about 2 tablespoons of olive oil on top. Close the aluminum foil over the garlic and roast for 45 minutes to 1 hour until the garlic is soft and caramelized. The excess oil can be saved or also used in this dish - but it will make this a little more garlicky since it is now garlic oil!
