Edamame Dip (枝豆ディップ)
Edamame are young soy beans and are well known as a healthy snack nowadays. The nutrients are different from other beans: there is less protein, carbohydrate and Vitamin B, but more vitamin A and C. Edamame is a healthy snack option, but don’t eat too much. I believe there is no such thing as a perfect food, the most important thing is balance. Even if it’s a healthy option, too much is never good.
I love to eat edamame simple, but with this dip you can still enjoy the edamame taste! Also it can be used as a sandwich garnish.
Add yuzu kosho (a hot Japanese condiment : pepper paste + salt + yuzu (Japanese citrus) peel) or wasabi as your preference. Yuzu kosho already contains some salt, so adjust the salt content.
