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
ounces frozen edamame
small cloves of garlic

- Bring a large saucepan of water to a boil. Season with salt. Add the edamame and cook for 4 minutes over medium heat. Drain. Run cold water over the edamame for 3 minutes, to stop the cooking. Drain. Let dry for 30 minutes.
