Author Notes: We eat a lot of hummus around our house. A while back, I decided to venture into dip/appetizer territory by using some different legumes. The edamame is perfect with a little garlic and fresh lemon.
This dip is great to have on hand for a quick snack or to take to the office to curb those munchies. I serve it with fresh cut carrots and celery; but, it would also go nicely with toasted pita. - ChezUs
- 16 ounces frozen edamame
- 3 small cloves of garlic
- 2 small meyer lemons, zested and juiced

- With the food processor running, slowly add the olive oil and continue to beat until smooth and mixed.
