Chunky edamame bean hummus

There's already a recipe for hummus here on the blog but I've improved the recipe and made it with edamame beans/soy beans instead, which tastes just as amazing! It's loaded with flavors and super duper healthy for body and soul!
This recipe literally takes five minutes to complete and your blender does all the hard work for you. It's so filled with proteins and vegan on the same time! So how about skipping the meat for once and enjoy a plant based meal?
Here's the recipe:

400 g frozen and peeled edamame beans
5 sundried tomatoes in oil
3 tbsp lemon juice
3 tbsp white vine vinegar (optional)
2-3 cloves garlic or 1 tsp garlic powder
Salt and pepper
Water to help it blend
Defrost the edamame beans by pouring cold or boiling water over them in a strainer. Put all the ingredients in a blender and add some water to help it blend. Push the button and wait until the perfect consistency is formed.
As you can see on the pictures, I like mine very chunky because I always just eat it with a fork or a spoon straight out of the jar. But if you want to spread it on your sandwich bread or mix it with your salad like a normal person, you can blend it until it's super smooth and spreadable. You can also use it as dip for your veggie sticks or rye bread chips and tortilla chips. Enjoy!
