This dip tastes like guacamole but made with edamame which has more protein and fiber. Serve it just like guacamole with raw veggies, tortilla chips, or pita bread.

So this is my recipe and I realized after reading the last review I forgot to add something on the original. This is optional but I do like to add a little lemon juice and cilantro before serving to add more zing. Hope you enjoy Read More

I love the idea of making a dip from edamame but this flavor combo didn't work for me. The cumin and garlic were way too strong and completely obscured the flavor of the edamame. Maybe that's the point but I love edamame and would like to be able to taste it. I think this would work much better with Asian flavors: ponzu or soy sauce sesame oil wasabi and pickled ginger served with home-baked pita chips sprinkled with Chinese 5-spice or even used as a filling for nori rolls. Thanks for the inspiration though. Read More

I was on here looking for somehting to round out the Middle Eastern picnic I'm preparing for this evening.This recipe showed up on the front page since it's new so I thought I'd try it out. I'm glad I did. I made a lot of substitutions due to personal preference: A small amount (1/2 t.?) of powdered chipolte chilies in place of the whole canned ones Saracha hot chili sauce in place of the hot sauce and nonfat plain yogurt for half the oil.I also added some lemon juice to brighten it up a bit. The end result was perfect. This is a tasty recipe that would also work well as a spread. Thanks! Read More

So this was really different... I wouldn't call it guacamole but it really was good. It had so much flavor! I only used 1 tsp of olive oil added 2 TB lowfat plain yogurt added 2 TB lemon juice instead of the water and 2 TB leftover salsa. Cilantro would definitely go well with this recipe. I omitted the salt and pepper... didn't seem to need it. Overall a great alternative to guacamole... especially since avocados are so pricey and edamame are so inexpensive! Thanks for the recipe!

I've made this a few times now as a healthier alternate to guacamole. This is VERY good and entire family loved it. But each time - I've had a difficult time getting the edamame pureed to a consistency and had to monkey around a bit w/it and the liquids given here. (otherwise would rate a 5) Great flavor though - VERY good and healthy! Read More

Mine was not very green which I attribute to the hot pepper sauce I used. However this impressed me greatly! We truly enjoyed having this dip with some chips during a relaxing stay at the family cabin. Read More

this was really different but great! we loved it and honestly it didn't taste the same but was very similar to a good guacamole. we will definitely make this again. next time i will probably use some chipotle powder though instead of buying a whole can of peppers for just one pepper. Read More

I didn't care for this one at all although I liked the idea of using edamame for a dip. But no one cared for the flavor. I'll have to keep looking. Read More

Yum! I should have known to use less chipotle pepper but I threw a whole one in anyway so this was a bit spicy for my wimpy taste buds. However that was easily remedied by serving it with plain yogurt to cut the heat. I used lime juice instead of water and added cilantro. I wouldn't say it tastes at all like guacamole but it is really good. Thanks:) Read More
