My husband loves ginger and wasabi.
My husband LOVEs hummus.
Which is great for me, because so long as we have some whole grain bread or crackers, and a container of hummus in the house- I know I could probably not cook for the rest of the week and he wouldn’t starve. #winning!
Since we have been married, he has asked me time and time again to make him wasabi hummus. And so, as we drew closer to our first anniversary, I caved and decided to make some.
There were a few bumps and messes along the way
but let me say that it was worth it! The edemame has the same creamy texture as regular hummus, but with a vibrant green colour and a distinctive spicy kick that can’t be beat!
1/2 package shelled frozen edemame defrosted
1-2 tsp minced ginger
1 clove garlic
wasabi powder to taste (depending on how spicy you like it) dissolved in two tbsp water
salt to taste
Add all ingredients to a food processor and pulse on high until pureed to smooth adding water by the 1/2 tbsp if you need to loosen the hummus along the way!
Enjoy as a perfect snack on whole grain crackers. Or pair with grilled salmon and rice for an “undone sushi” inspired meal.
