Edamame Guac
Guacamole is a staple appetizer at many Mexican restaurants. The deliciously creamy dip offers the perfect contrast to the crunchy chip. Edamame is an interesting and healthy addition to the appetizer, offering up protein and additional nutrients such as vitamin K and folate. Even better – the fat content of the avocado allows the fat-soluble vitamin K of the edamame to be readily absorbed in the body.
Try this Asian-inspired twist on the Mexican staple, featuring sesame seeds, green onion and soy sauce:
Serving Amount
  • 2 tsp chili garlic sauce

  • 1 tsp soy sauce

  • 12 Juice from lime

  • 1 green onion stalk, chopped

  • 1 clove large garlic, finely minced

  • 3 tbsp cilantro, finely chopped

  • 12 cup edamame, steamed

  • 2 avocados

  • 1 Roma tomato, diced

  • Salt and pepper to taste

  • 2 tsp sesame seeds (or Everything but the Bagel Seasoning from this recipe)

  • Step 1

    Pulse steamed edamame in a food processor or blender with soy sauce and lime juice until smooth. 

  • Step 2

    In a bowl, add all ingredients except sesame seeds and gently mash avocado to combine with ingredients until it has reached desired texture. Sprinkle sesame seeds on top.  

  • Step 3

    Enjoy with chips, on toast or with a salad or rice bowl.
