Feeling a bit full after the holidays? Had too much sweets? Well, this good-for-you vitamin-packed veggie dip is a tasty idea - hope you enjoy it! It's great on its own with veggies or pita crisps (or potato chips, if you're so inclined), or on a sandwich with a slice of cured ham.
200 ml shelled edamame beans (about 1 2/3 cup)
1 thumb-sized piece of ginger, minced
1 garlic clove, minced
1 shallot, minced
fresh coriander, a handful
1/2 lime, juiced
3 tbsp smetana (substitute crème fraîche or thick yogurt)
Bring the beans to a boil in a little water, without salt. Drain and rinse with cold water. Put in a food processor with the ginger, garlic, shallot, coriander and lime. Process until smooth, then stir in the smetana or your chosen alternative. Season with salt.
