Edamame Hummus Dip (Recipe by Stephanie Shaw)
1 cup edamame
2 garlic cloves
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1/8 teaspoon Sriracha seasoning
1/2 teaspoon cumin
4 Kalamata olives
2 tablespoons Kalamata juice
1/3 cup tahini
1/2 teaspoon pink sea salt
1 bunch cilantro
3 tablespoons olive oil
Place all ingredients except olive oil in the food processor. Mix well. Slowly pour olive oil in the food processor as you are mixing.
Notes: You can replace Sriracha seasoning with Sriracha hot sauce. If you like your hummus creamier, increase the amount of olive oil you add. The next time I make this I will put in more Kalamata olives. I really love that salty olive taste.
