Ed Lee’s Edamame Hummus

New York born Chef Edward Lee, who runs 601 Magnolia in Louisville Kentucky, was featured on Season 3 of Mind of a Chef, and made a great Edamame Hummus. We thought we would share this with you all, as it is a much simpler and different version than the edamame hummus we usually make in the Pristine Gourmet Kitchen. We are using canola in this recipe, for its strong floral flavours, that pair really nicely with the vegetal nature of our GMO free edamame. We are sending Chef Lee some of our oils, so he can see how good they are for himself.


  • 2 tablespoons Pristine Gourmet Pure Virgin Canola oil
  • 1 shallot, finely chopped
  • 5 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 2 cups shelled cooked GMO free Pristine Gourmet edamame
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup tahini
  • 1/2 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin


  1. In a large saucepan, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the shallot and garlic and sauté for 2 minutes, or until soft. Add the edamame and cook for 2 minutes. Add the water, tahini, lemon juice, soy sauce, salt and cumin, stir, and bring to a simmer. Simmer gently for 6 minutes.
  2. Transfer the contents of the pan to a food processor and process until you have a thick, crumbly puree. You can keep this warm in a pot on the stove until ready to serve, or serve at room temperature.
