5. In a food processor, work the edamame mixture with the remaining lemon juice for 1 minute. With the machine running, add ¼ cup of water and remaining 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Work the mixture until smooth, adding more water, 1 teaspoon at a time, if needed.

6. Taste for seasoning and add more salt and pepper, if you like. Transfer to a bowl, smooth the top, and garnish with sumac, pistachios, and parsley.
