Recipe type: Appetizer
Serves: 10
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • 2 green onions, thinly sliced
  • 1 tbsp grated fresh ginger
  • 1 red hot chile, seeded and minced
  • 3 cups shelled edamame beans (thawed, if frozen)
  • ½ cup water
  • ¼ cup white miso
  1. In a large skillet, heat the oil over medium heat. Add the scallions, ginger and chile, and saute until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add the edamame and continue cooking, stirring occasionally, for about 3 minutes or until the edamame are bright green and tender. Set aside to cool for 5 minutes or so.
  2. Spoon the cooled edamame mixture into the bowl of a food processor. Add miso and water, and process until pureed and smooth.
  3. Transfer the pea mixture to a food processor and let cool slightly. Add the water and miso, and puree until smooth. Serve immediately, or cover tightly with plastic wrap and store in the refrigerator until ready to serve (up to 3 days).
