1 bag of shelled edamame
3-4 T fresh lemon juice
2 T olive oil
1/2 t. salt
1 t. pepper
1/8 tsp. of cayenne pepper
your favorite sliced bread
cook edamame according to directions on the bag...drain water off.
once cooked and cool enough to handle take 3/4 of the cooked edamame (putting the other 1/4 aside), and lemon juice and put into blender. blend until fairly smooth.....if you have lumps don't worry this will just enhance the texture. remove mixture from blender and put into a large bowl.
chop remaining 1/4 of cooked edamame into small pieces (this will create some texture in the recipe...so chop to your liking, the larger the pieces the more texture and vice versa).
add chopped edamame, olive oil, salt and pepper to blended edamame and stir til incorporated.
use your favorite sliced or homemade bread......i really like it on a seedy/grainy bread with vegannaise and sprinkle of salt on it. i also make the sandwich with about 3/4" of the mash piled on my bread. yummer!!! i think that is on the menu for the weekend.
FYI: the proportions of the condiments in this recipe can be adjusted to your liking.......amounts listed are just a guess-stimate. if the flavor is to subtle add a little more lemon juice and salt, and maybe a splash more olive oil. i just created this recipe after i had it at a restaurant here in austin. it's super easy to make and very delish.
