Edamame Dip

Well, the swap on the deck needed to be moved inside yesterday, but it was still a roaring success. My friends bought the most delicious selection of fresh fruits and treats and we were able to chat and eat on the front porch before the enormous downpour arrived. Everyone seemed to like my edamame dip, which was so easy to prepare.

The main reason this dip was easy was because I had already prepared a jar of my Dreamy Tahini salad dressing. I like to make up a large batch and keep it in the fridge as it lasts very well. The recipe for the dressing is also on my blog, and now that I have added that very useful search feature, you will be able to quickly look it up after reading this post!

The dressing contains tahini (of course) plus miso paste, fresh garlic, soy sauce or Bragg's Aminos, lemon juice, parsley, and green onions or chives. Maybe a couple of other things I am forgetting. You get the jist, though. The only other ingredient you need is the edamame.


One bag (12 oz) frozen, shelled edamame (Trader Joe's has these.)
Pinch of salt
About 1 cup of Dreamy Tahini Dressing (search this blog for the recipe)

In a large sauce pan, cover the edamame and salt with cold water. Bring to boil over high heat. Reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes or until soft but not falling apart. Drain and cool.

Place cooled edamame in food processor and add Dreamy Tahini dressing. Pulse until blended completely. Taste for seasoning. Add more dressing or more salt if needed. Chill dip for several hours or overnight before serving. Serve with pita chips, crudites, or just eat with a spoon! Can also be used as a topping for salmon burgers or the burger of your choice. Enjoy!
