Edamame Hummus

We bring this short break in our blogging of our UK trip to host family, host weekend guests, have a funeral, get ready for a big garage sale for my parents who are downsizing and moving to our neighborhood, oversee construction in the house the parents are moving into, and give you a hummus recipe.

The weekend guests were the 2 ladies who were on our trip with us, Carolyn and Ruby. We talked and reminisced, and laughed at the memories and looked at everyone’s pictures and talked some more. Those of you know us probably can’t imagine.

We went to Savannah to River Street where it was windy and chilly but still was loaded with people who thought they were going to get warm GA weather. Not so this March weekend. The First Saturday vendors were out selling things from jewelry to art to shark’s teeth. And the usual entertainers were out, including the trumpeteer who plays a tune as people walk past. For example, if a pregnant lady walks past, he’ll play “Rock-a-Bye-Baby” and so on and so forth. So 4 Mennonite ladies decided to walk past to see what tune he would play.

Taken on a day when it was not a cold, windy March day:

 

He played, “When the Saints Go Marching In” and we couldn’t help but chuckle and wave.

And we passed Forsyth Park at dusk.

 

and for a brief 2 seconds no persons were in sight.

 

Hennyways, about the Edamame Hummus recipe … I had “pinned” a recipe but didn’t have a chance to make it until recently. The original pin was kind of bland so I tried it again and turned it slightly down an Asian direction.

1 – 12 oz bag shelled edamame or mukimame or home-grown green soybeans

1 large or 2 small garlic cloves, minced

2 tablespoons olive oil

1 tablespoon tahina (sesame seed paste)

1 tablespoon lemon or lime juice

1/2 teaspoon soy sauce

1/2 teaspoon ground or fresh ginger

red pepper, salt and black pepper to taste

 

Cook the green soybeans for 5 minutes. Drain and chill with cold water. Drain and put in food processor with minced garlic cloves. Process until only slightly chunky. You will need to frequently scrape the sides. While processing, drizzle in olive oil. Add remaining ingredients and process until pasty. Serve with pita chips or crackers.

 

 

 

It’s greener than that. Definitely prettier than that.

  1. Haha, well, that trumpeter could tell y’all were saints. πŸ™‚ Now Adrian wants to go down there and walk past him to see what he plays!

    I shall have to ask my fambilly more about your parents’ moving plans.

    As for hummus, I think it’s a very healthy idea, but my husband thinks it’s nearly inedible. :/ But he hasn’t had yours, and maybe if we call it something else…? πŸ˜€

  2. Wow! That picture of the park fountain is bee-u-ti-ful! And the hummus sounds yum-o! I bought some guacamole the other day at Sam’s and I have a hard time leaving it alone!

  3. Oh my goodness–your picture at Forsyth Park is GORGEOUS! I need to try that hummus. I really like hummus, but have only tried making it once with not so good results.

  4. That trumpeter made me laugh! He got it right, for sure! πŸ™‚ And Forsyth Park with no one in the picture – yay!! Just beautiful!

    And I LOVE hummus, but have never tried it before! Leave it to Marylou to find a great recipe. πŸ™‚ I want to try it!

I'd love to hear from you! Feel free to leave a comment.
