Recipe Description
Edamame are fresh soy beans, pale green and oval, about the size of a fingernail. Look for them in the grocer's freezer section, although sometimes you can find them fresh. They are very nutritious, and when pureed like a pesto, with garlic, lemon, parsley and pine nuts, their usually mild taste comes alive. Serve this unusual pesto on pasta, or spread it on thin baguette slices or crackers for a quick appetizer. It's great spread on sandwiches instead of mayonnaise, too.

Serves Tool

Serves To:USMetric
1/4 Teaspoon(t)  salt
1 Tablespoon(T)  fresh lemon juice
1/3 Cup(c)  extra virgin olive oil
1/2 Cup(c)  flat leaf parsley leaves
3 Tablespoon(T)  pine nuts
1 Clove(clv)  garlic
3/4 Cup(c)  edamame, shelled


Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil over high heat. Add the edamame and cook until tender, 4 to 5 minutes. Drain the edamame in a strainer and set aside to cool completely. Place the edamame in a food processor or blender and add the garlic, pine nuts and parsley. Process until coarsely pureed, stopping to scrape down the side of the bowl once or twice. Add the olive oil, lemon juice and salt and process to combine, about 30 seconds. The pesto will not be completely smooth. The pesto can be refrigerated, covered, for up to 5 days, or frozen for up to 3 months.
