 Edamame Tofu Dip

Photo by: Sheri Giblin

I almost always have a bag of frozen shelled edamame in my freezer. Here I purée them for a creamy, fresh, protein-packed dip speckled with cilantro.

Yield: Makes 3 cups (720ml)

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 cup (225g) silken tofu
  • 2 cups (290g) frozen shelled edamame
  • 2 tsp kosher or sea salt
  • 3 tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp asian sesame oil
  • 1 tsp finely minced garlic
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1 tsp freshly ground pepper
  • ¼ cup (15g) minced cilantro/fresh coriander leaves, plus sprigs for garnish

Skinny dippers:

  • Baked pita chips, crudités, crostini

Directions

1. Drain the tofu and blot completely dry with paper towels/absorbent paper. Set the tofu on several thicknesses of paper while you cook the edamame.

2. Fill a medium saucepan two-thirds full of water and bring to a boil over high heat. Add the edamame and ½ tsp of the salt and boil for 3 minutes. Drain in a colander and rinse under cold water. Drain again and blot to remove excess moisture.

3. In the work bowl of a food processor fitted with the metal blade, process the tofu, edamame, the remaining 1½ tsp salt, the lemon juice, sesame oil, garlic, sugar, and pepper until very smooth. Scatter the minced cilantro/fresh coriander leaves over the top and pulse to incorporate. Taste and adjust the seasoning. Transfer to a serving bowl, cover, and refrigerate for at least 1 hour to allow the flavors to meld. Garnish with cilantro/fresh coriander.

Notes

Dip Do-Ahead: This dip can be prepared up to 2 days in advance. Cover and refrigerate. Remove from the refrigerator just before serving.
