Meatless Monday: Edamame Wasabi Dip

Today’s Meatless Monday recipe is brought to you by the lovely and talented Dixya at Food Pleasure Health since I am currently in Ragnar recovery mode.  She’s a registered dietician that makes some seriously amazing, drool worthy and nutritious recipes and am so excited to have her guest posting for me!

I’ll let her take it from here… 

Thanks Annmarie for letting me highjack your space today.

Hi! Fit Foodie Mama readers, I am so excited to share this Vegan, Gluten-Free Edamame Wasabi Dip with you all while Annmarie is recovering from her Ragnar Relay. The idea for this edamame wasabi dip came from a Japanese restaurant called RA Sushi. I don’t even know what exactly it contained but here is my vegan, gluten-free take on it with fiery wasabi, salty tamari, and tangy rice wine vinegar.

We begin by dumping everything into a food processor.  Start with boiled edamame, which is an excellent source of protein, and calcium. For this dip, I suggest getting the shelled kind unless shelling edamame is therapeutic for you, I understand.

I used low sodium vegetable broth (leftover from this green curry mushroom soup), rice wine vinegar, tamari (or use soy-sauce but it won’t be gluten-free), and wasabi paste. Did you know that the wasabi paste from the store is not a real wasabi? Cool details right here if you are interested. Depending upon your powerful your food processor is, it could get smoother but a little bit of texture adds a nice mouthfeel.

Edamame Wasabi Dip is great for snacking as an appetizer or a spread with these homemade crackers or bread. You can make these ahead of time and double or triple the batch if needed.

Sounds like the perfect dip for these chilly days! Nice and spicy! I love wasabi, especially when I am feeling slightly under the weather, warms me up from the inside! Can't wait to try this with sugar snap peas!

    Wasabi is an awesome way to warm up! :)

Looks great in theory, but I tend to stay away from wasabi! :)
