Roasted Edamame Dip


I enjoy Edamame beans a lot, either steamed or boiled. Another way to savor these beans is to roast them, and make this Roasted Edamame Dip. This is a refreshing dip, full of flavors, luscious, and best of all, it's healthy and good for you!


Roasted Edamame Dip

Ingredients

1 Bag (500g) Frozen Edamame Beans, thawed
Sea Salt
1 /2 Tbsp Olive Oil
1 Shallot, peeled and chopped
½ Garlic Clove, peeled and chopped
2 Tbsp Chopped Coriander Leaves
½ tsp Ground Cumin
1 Jalapeno or Serrano Pepper, seeded and chopped
6 Tbsp Yogurt
2 to 3 Tbsp Hazelnut or Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Juice of 1 Lime
Sea Salt
Fresh Ground Black Pepper

Method

Preheat the oven to 450˚F/230˚C.

Toss the Edamame with sea salt and olive oil, and roast in the oven for about 20 minutes. Let the bean cool before shelling. You should have slightly more than 1 cup of Edamame beans.

In a food processor, combine Edamame beans, shallot, garlic, coriander leaves, cumin, Jalapeno, yogurt, hazelnut or olive oil, and lime juice and process until thick and smooth. Season the dip with sea salt, black pepper and some extra lime juice, if necessary.



Top the Edamame dip with a few drizzle of hazelnut or olive oil, and some freshly ground black pepper before serving. Serve at room temperature with some crackers.

  6. You mentioned shelling the edamame. The only frozen ones I can find are already shelled. Will that work also?
