Total time: 
Serves: 6 - 8 people
  • ½ cup water
  • 15 ounces frozen shelled edamame
  • 1 avocado
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • ½ cup parsley
  • ¼ cup tarragon
  • 3 tablespoons chives
  • ⅓ cup lemon juice
  • ⅓ cup tahini (mix well before using)
  • kosher salt
  • 2 tablespoons pine nuts
  • Pita Chips:
  • 1 package whole wheat pita bread
  • good quality extra virgin olive oil
  • sumac
  • sea salt
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Add the water and the edamame to a small saucepan and place over high heat. Bring to a boil and cook uncovered for about 1 minute. As soon as all the edamame is thawed, turn off the heat.
  3. Pour the edamame and the water from the pan into a food processor. Add the avocado, garlic, parsley, tarragon, chives, lemon juice, tahini, and 1 teaspoon of salt. Process until smooth, about 2 minutes. If needed, add a little water to thin out the mixture - 1 tablespoon at a time until you reach the desired consistency. Allow the mixture to cool to room temperature before serving.
  4. Cut each pita bread in quarters and each quarter in half to make 8 triangles. Place them in a single layer on a sheet pan and brush lightly with olive oil, sprinkle with sumac, and sea salt. Bake for 10 - 12 minutes.
  5. In a dry saute pan over medium-high, toast the pine nuts by moving the pan around constantly - this should only take about a minute.
  6. When ready to serve, spoon the hummus out onto a serving dish. Using the back of a spoon, spread the hummus around to form several circular canals. Pour the olive oil into the canals and top with the toasted pine nuts. Serve with the pita chips and enjoy!
