This Edamame Miso Avocado Hummus is packed with protein and makes a healthy snack. Serve with veggies or as a spread on whole grain crackers or nori.
As the end of the school year approaches, I feel like the day flies by and there is so much to get done. So, there are days when I’m running errands and don’t get back home until my son is almost getting off the bus. Although I try to make sure I eat a good breakfast on those days, by the time I get home in the afternoon, I’m starving.
Since I’m usually short on time, I’ve found the key is to eat a nutrient dense, protein-packed snack that fills me up and doesn’t weigh me down. This Edamame Avocado Miso Hummus did the trick last week when I had one of those crazy busy days. It’s made with just edamame (they come frozen, already peeled), avocado, light miso (you can find this in the refrigerated section at Asian grocery stores and many supermarkets these days), flax seed oil, and fresh lemon juice.
This hummus makes a great dip with veggies, and a nutritious spread. I had some extra seaweed wrappers that I rolled up with this edamame hummus inside. This protein-packed snack was quick and easy to make, and I made it to the bus stop just in time ;).
Edamame Miso Avocado Hummus
- 2 cups frozen organic edamame shelled, thawed
- 2 tablespoons organic light miso
- 1 avocado
- 2 tablespoons flax seed oil
- 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
- 2-3 tablespoons water to thin out hummus
Place edamame, miso and avocado in food processor and process until almost smooth; add oil, lemon juice and water through feeding tube and continue to process until smooth.
If you keep this overnight, the color will turn greyish because of the avocado, so it's best to consume the same day. You can also just scrape off the surface if you eat it the next day.
My family LOVES avocados, so this is definitely a recipe we will use! Thank you for sharing (:
Suzanne – hope your family enjoys this hummus – the avocado lightens up the texture of the dip.
WHAT kind of miso? The green paste?
I used white miso
, the lightest one you can find. You can find it in the refrigerated section of many supermarkets or at an Asian grocery store.

Some of my favorite flavors are in this dip, although I must admit that I have not used miso in my recipes. I guess it’s time I get to the store and buy some! Would light soy sauce be an acceptable substitute if someone did not have miso?
You can use a little light soy sauce in place of miso, but it might make this dip a little dark. I used light miso which is a little salty and sweet – it adds a depth of flavor that’s hard to explain.

I’m always looking for good ways to use miso paste once I open it up to make one recipe. This is perfect!
Thanks Jessica – I love miso!
