Do you like soybeans?? You may have had some edamame beans at a Japanese restaurant? They are usually steamed, still in the pods. One of my favorite things to snack on is Edamame hummus. Usually I call it edamame dip, since I HATE the word hummus. But you can call it whatever you want, but you just gotta make this stuff!! It is delicious. My friend Faith and I ordered some at a local restaurant this weekend. It went very well with our pina coladas! hahahah. I serve mine with some wonton chips but it is great with veggie sticks too……or pita chips. But I must warn you, it is addicting…seriously delicious, especially when it’s spicy with wasabi. YUM…..I gotta go eat some more…so I hope you will make it and let me know what you think!!!
1 bag frozen edamame beans, thawed
1 garlic clove
1 tablespoon chopped fresh ginger (not powdered)
2 tablespoons soy sauce
2 green onions
juice of 1 good size lime
chili paste or wasabi to taste
just throw everything in the food processor and pulse till you have a smooth consistency. add a bit of water if its too thick. ENJOY!
