Edamame Dip:

Makes 2 cups; 48 calories and about ½ gram of fat per 2 tablespoon serving

-8 oz. package of shelled, ready to eat edamame (about 1 ½ cups) Find in organic freezer section

-1/3 cup cilantro leaves (or I will use basil or thyme)

-1 avocado, peeled and chopped

-1/3 cup reduced-fat sour cream

-1/3 cup water

-2 tbsp. fresh lime juice

-1 tsp. salt

-1/2 tsp. black pepper

-1/4 tsp. toasted sesame oil

-1/4 tsp. ground cumin (optional)

1. Put the edamame in a food processor and pulse several times. Add cilantro; pulse again. Add remaining ingredients and process the mixture until smooth.

2. Serve with veggy or corn chips or cut-up vegetables.
