Asian-Inspired Edamame Tart

This was a totally random creation. I kind of just felt like something different, and now that Justin is in the thick of studying for boards, I get to be queen of the kitchen.

So the other day I was just browsing Trader Joe's when I came across this stuff: Edamame Hummus.

Genius! Who the heck thought of this? When I got to taste it at home, I instantly fell in love. It's garlicky, smooth, with a hint of edamame and salt. Perfect for a tart — and on toast with a scrambled egg for breakfast (I can now vouch for that).

1 puff pastry sheet, thawed and rolled a little bit
1/2 cup Trader Joe's edamame hummus
2 cups frozen edamame
1 cup green beans
1/2 bell pepper (I like yellow or orange because they're sweetest)
1 tbsp soy sauce
1 tsp sesame oil
1 tsp Dijon mustard
splash balsamic vinegar
1 tsp Sriracha sauce
Salt & Pepper

I had puff pastry already on hand, but naturally as it was thawing out it got all gloopy and weird. I just rolled it out, and it turned out pretty good. Bet yours will turn out better!

To make the vinaigrette: combine the soy sauce, Dijon, Sriracha, balsamic, sesame oil, and some pepper. Cut the green beans into 1/2-inch pieces. Blanch them in salted water along with the edamame for a couple minutes until cooked through. 

Toss the beans with the vinaigrette and some sliced bell pepper. Coat well and let it sit for five minutes to soak up some of that flavor.

Spread some edamame hummus onto the puff pastry, and top with the veggies. If you want you can brush the edges with egg to make it nice and golden.

Bake at 400 degrees for 20-25 minutes. 
It might be a little moist from the vinaigrette, but it will taste amazing.

Here's to trying something new!

  1. Oh I love edamame but I would have never thought to try this. It looks really good, and best of all, really easy!
