From Our Kitchen: Soybean Hummus
1 pound soybeans
Place soybeans in a covered saucepan with a little water. Bring to a boil over high heat; lower heat to medium and cook until the soybeans pop open and beans are tender; about 8 to 10 minutes. Remove from heat, drain and cool.
When the soybeans are cool enough to handle, squeeze the pods to extract the beans. Place beans in a food processor. Add garlic and lime juice. Process to chop ingredients. With the motor running, add the olive oil and process until ingredients are a spreadable purée, adding a little more olive oil if necessary. Serve with crackers, toasted pita chips or sliced vegetables.Edit ModuleShow Tags Edit ModuleShow Tags
