Every time I make this as an appetizer, I am blown away by response. It is so simple to make and there is never any left, while the appetizers that took ages are still there when ready to sit down. I think the important thing when making this is you have to taste and be the judge but here are the basic guidelines to making it!
1 lb of Edamame (Cook in boiling water for 3-5 minutes and stained)
Juice of 2 Lemons
4 Cloves of Chopped Garlic- I usually use more
2 Tablespoons of Olive Oil
1/4 Cup of Tahini
In a blender add all of the ingredients and pulse until smooth. At this point taste and see if you want to add a little more garlic, lemon juice or Tahini. I serve this usually with cut carrots and cucumbers.
hey patty, great recipe. quick question, do I boil the edamame beans in their pods then take out, or take them out before boiling? thanks
Yes, take them out of their pods before boiling them
This is a great idea. I have bags of edamame so I’ll have to give this a try!
