  • Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 2 cups frozen shelled edamame
  • 3 large garlic cloves, peeled

    I love this recipe! Its very versatile. It can be a fun bbq dip, or a great light lunch on wasa crackers. I've even put leftover chicken and made sandwiches in it. Its a high protein low fat great spread that is delicious. Try it!
