Edamame Dip

So I owe a bit of credit to Trader Joe’s for my recipe. While shopping at the store I eyed a box of edamame beans and suddenly craved edamame in dip form. So I thought all I need now is a few essentials including tahini sauce, lemon, and garlic. Luckily, I had lemon and garlic at home and only needed the tahini sauce. What I found at the store was a tahini like hummus dip which already had lemon and garlic in it.  So, I used that as my base, added some more fresh garlic, lemon, and spices and of course the edamame. The dip is light and refreshing making for a perfect afternoon snack! As an added bonus, I have no doubt using straight sesame tahini sauce will make for just as good a dip. 


  • 3/4 cup fresh edamame beans 
  • 1 clove garlic, roughly chopped 
  • 5 tablespoon Trader Joe’s Tahini Sauce
  • 1/2 lemon, squeezed 
  • 2 tablespoon olive oil 
  • Salt and Pepper to taste
Start by processing the edamame beans until they reach a fine texture. 

Next add the garlic and pulse a few times to incorporate. Add the Tahini Sauce and lemon juice. Process for about 10 seconds to blend. Next, while processing, slowly pour in the olive oil to desired texture. Add in salt and pepper to taste. Pulse to finish. 

Love and make today a holiday,
