Edamame Dip

Edamame is delicious and healthy, but did you know that it is also a dip? At least it can be.  Throw a few ingredients in the food processor (or blender) and you’re set.  This dip is a great party food, appetizer, snack, or lunch.  It is also a fun, bright green that looks great in a pretty bowl with some chips or crackers on the side.  And did I say healthy? Seriously, how many dips can say that?

Edamame Dip Recipe

12 ounces shelled, cooked, and cooled edamame
