    Roasted Garlic & Edamame Spread

    Roasted Garlic & Edamame Spread



    I just found this... Sounds PERFECT!

    (I switch to four 10-hour days soon... In schools. With no A/C. In South Texas. In July & August. I'll need some stamina.)

    Prep: 10 minutes; Cook: 50 minutes. Planning for a party? Make this flavorful dip a day or two in advance, and store it covered tightly in the fridge.

    Yield: Makes 16 servings (serving size: 2 tablespoons)

    Good to Know
    Protect yourself from a pesky spring cold with garlic's disease-fighting compounds. And here's a bonus: Isoflavone-rich soybeans may help reduce the frequency and intensity of hot flashes and cut the risk of heart disease. Serve with toasted pita wedges, flatbread, or raw vegetables.

    Ingredients
    1 small whole garlic head
    2 cups water
    1 (16-ounce) package frozen shelled edamame (about 2 1/2 cups)
    1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
    5 tablespoons lemon juice
    1/4 cup reduced-fat sour cream
    3 tablespoons water
    1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro

    Preparation
    1. Cut about 1/4 inch off the top of the garlic head, so the cloves are slightly exposed, but don't peel the garlic. Wrap the head loosely in foil, and place in a preheated 400 oven for 45 minutes or until garlic is very soft and golden. Let cool; then squeeze the garlic cloves out of the paperlike peel.

    2. Meanwhile, bring 2 cups water to a boil; add edamame, and boil 5 minutes. Drain.

    3. Combine edamame, garlic, cumin, and next 5 ingredients (through 3 tablespoons water) in a food processor, and pulse until smooth. Garnish mixture with the chopped cilantro and serve.

    This turned out really good! I made it this morning and let the flavors marry a little before having some for lunch. It's so yummy-licious spread on some toasted sourdough bread! Thanks @TraciInTexas for sharing this great recipe!
