Spicy Ginger and Coconut Edamame Dip

Posted on: 26/01/2017


Prep time: 15 min

Cook time: 5 min

Yield: 8 to 10 servings

Level: Easy


Kosher salt

One 12-ounce bag frozen shelled edamame, thawed

3/4 cup lite coconut milk

1 whole scallion, coarsely chopped

2 teaspoons grated peeled fresh ginger

1 tablespoon fresh lime juice

4 to 6 teaspoons Sriracha, plus more for serving

Rice crackers, for dipping

Snow peas, radishes, cucumber slices and carrot sticks, for dipping


Bring a medium pot of water to a boil and add a generous pinch of salt. Add the edamame and cook until tender and bright green, about 5 minutes. Drain and cool under cold running water; drain again.

Transfer the edamame to the bowl of a food processor and add the coconut milk, scallion, ginger, lime juice, 4 teaspoons of the Sriracha, 1 teaspoon salt and 1/4 cup water. Process until you have a fairly smooth paste, about 1 minute. Taste the dip and add more salt and the remaining 2 teaspoons Sriracha if you like. Serve immediately, or cover and refrigerate up to 1 day.

Transfer the dip to a serving bowl and top with a drizzle of Sriracha. Serve with rice crackers and assorted vegetables for dipping.

Cook’s Note: Edamame are firmer than most beans, and as a result they make a slightly chunky puree. If you prefer a dip with a very smooth texture, pass it through a sieve after pureeing it, using a spatula to work it through.
