Quick edamame bean dip

I love how quick and easy this dip is to make, and that the ingredients can be kept on hand.

We recently had people over and I had been out mountain biking. About half an hour before they arrived, I realised I didn’t have anything for nibbles so I threw together this dip in about 5 minutes.

Ingredients

  • About 1 cup of frozen edamame beans, cooked in the microwave for 1 minute
  • 1 tablespoon miso paste
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons water

Optional, depending on what you have on hand and how much time you have.

  • juice of a lemon
  • few mint leaves

Method

Put everything in kitchen whizz or use stick blender. Process until the desired texture.

The leftovers are delicious on toast for breakfast.

Miso paste is available from the supermarket ( in the International aisle at Countdown. The one I buy comes in the tub in the pic )

Edamame beans are in the frozen section by the beans.
