This fresh green, creamy dip, excerpted from the cookbook The Food You Crave, has all the classic hummus flavors of garlic, cumin, and lemon. But it is light on the cumin and garlic in favor of a big citrus punch. Its mellow, bright flavor and smooth texture make it the perfect companion to the bold spicy shards of pita.
Set 1 Tbs. of the edamame aside for a garnish. Place the rest, along with the tofu, salt, pepper, cumin, garlic, oil and lemon juice, in a food processor and process until very smooth, about 2 minutes. Taste and adjust the seasoning with more salt, pepper, or lemon juice, if desired.
Transfer the hummus to a serving bowl and garnish with the reserved edamame and a sprinkle of cumin. Serve with the spiced pita chips.
Make Ahead Tips
Hummus can be refrigerated in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
