Edamame Dip

January 18, 2011


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.

Yes, I had never thought of using edamame instead of chickpeas; but the texture and flavor are really fantastic. I am experimenting with some new flavors to add into the mix. Stay tuned!
