Edamame Dip: This dip has loads of fiber and protein. With zero cholesterol, this makes a perfectly healthy, low-calorie snack. It's delicious and super easy to make! Edamame is the soybean in its least processed form. You can use edamame in place of beans in most dips to give them a different taste and texture.

Ingredients: Use organic ingredients whenever possible!

  • 1 cup edamame beans (blanched; thawed if using frozen)
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1/2 cup fresh cilantro
  • 1 tbsp. miso (or low-sodium tamari or soy sauce)
  • Juice of one lemon
  • Drizzle of olive oil or water as needed
  • Sea salt and crushed red pepper to taste
  • Directions:

    1. Thaw edamame if using frozen (lightly boil; but do not overcook).
    2. Combine garlic, miso, and lemon juice in a blender or food processor and pulse to chop the garlic.
    3. Add the edamame beans and cilantro. Blend on medium until smooth.
    4. Add sea salt and red pepper flakes to taste.
    5. Add water or olive oil to reach desired consistency.
    6. Chill for a couple of hours. Serve with veggies, pita chips or crackers.

    I think it's easier to buy edamame already shelled. It saves a lot of time. If you do buy them in the husks, be sure to squeeze out the beans (the husks are too fibrous to eat!) This is a quick and easy low-fat snack. This high fiber, high protein dip will keep you full longer and give you energy. It's a great alternative to humus! If you are allergic to soy, you can substitute the edamame for peas or green beans.
