Though traditional hummus is a snacking favorite, it can get a little boring. Try this Asian-inspired recipe that swaps in cannellini beans and edamame for the garbanzo beans. Instead of tahini, a touch of sesame oil adds a nutty, toasty flavor to round out this healthy, green-hued dip. Spread it on your next sandwich or use it as a dip for crispy lavash or taro chips.

What to buy: Shelled edamame are sold two ways—cooked or uncooked. If you buy the cooked, frozen ones, all you have to do is thaw them for this recipe. If you buy the uncooked ones, follow the cooking directions on the package.

Tips for Beans and Christmas

Instructions

  1. 1Place the cannellini beans, edamame, garlic, water, lemon juice, olive oil, salt, and sesame seed oil in a food processor fitted with a blade attachment. Season with pepper and process until smooth, scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed. If the dip is too thick, pulse in more water, a tablespoon at a time, until the desired consistency is reached.
  2. 2Transfer to a medium bowl, add the cilantro, and stir to combine. Taste and season with more salt or lemon juice as needed. Serve with Taro Chips, if using.
