I have about a million things I want to bake. But it’s not happening.
It’s 90 degree out, 50% humidity. I walked to and from the farmer’s market and was basically a sweaty mess.
So instead of baking, I made…
1 1/2 cups shelled edamame (I thawed the frozen kind)
zest and juice of 1 1/2 limes
1 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp garlic
2 tbsp tahini
1/4- 1/2 cup water (enough to reach a consistency you like)
Throw it all in the food processor. Start with only 1/4 cup of water stream more in if you want it smoother and not as thick. I used about half a cup.
Then came a cucumber, edamame hummus and cheese sandwich.
A few hours later, I was going stir crazy from sitting around all day working on my computer. For some reason, I thought a run would be a good idea. I made it maybe a little more than a mile before I stopped and walked home. Way too hottttttt. Honestly, I probably could have kept going but I just plain wimped out.
Note to self: early morning gym sessions will resume tomorrow morning due to the heat.
Have a great (sweaty) night!

This looks delicious! I love the edamame hummus from trader joe’s but i’ve never tried making it myself…. I did just get a food processor today so I may have to try this recipe 🙂
WOW that looks so amazing.and cool. I think that would help beat the heat!!
what a great idea – i have heard of edamame guac but never hummus.
HTP’s Caitlin also just blogged about edamame hummus. 🙂 Need to try that (though I first have to find some shelled edamame over here).
I really feel like baking too – maybe we should bake at night when it cools off a tiny little bit 😉
Yep– definitely TOO hot for baking! This looks perfect!
I love the edamame hummus from Metro so I’m definitely going to give this a try!
I need to try this again, I had it a while back and wasn’t a huge fan but I don’t know why I wouldn’t like it?!? I love edamame!
I have seen a couple edamame recipes around the web and this one looks fantastic! I work with Seapoint Farms, the largest manufacturer and distributor of edamame in the county. We love coming across posts like this. For including the Wonder Veggie in your blog, you have been automatically entered to win a case of our Dry Roasted Edamame!!

I feel yeah on the heat. it is currently 80 in my apartment….and won’t budge. boo.
That hummus looks great. I love the green.
What a great way to use edamame! I have tahini I need to use, so I will probably be giving this a shot! 🙂
