Servings: 4 Serves
- 2-4 tbs Water as required
- 1 cup Cashews
- 400g bag Edamame Bean Pods or 1 1/4 cup beans
- 1 tbs Lemon Juice
- 1/2 Avocado
- 2 tbs Fresh Mint
- 1 tbs Lime Juice
Place cashews in a small bowl. Cover with boiling water and set aside to soak for at least 10 minutes. You can skip this step if you are using a food processor.
While cashews are soaking, cook edamame beans according to the packet instructions. I steamed mine for 10 minutes. It is better to overcook the beans a little to make sure they are soft for blending.
Once cooked, remove beans from pods. It can help to run cold water over the pods to cool them if they are too hot to handle after cooking. Skip this step if you are using pre-shelled edamame.
Drain the cashews. Add the water, cashews, edamame beans and lemon juice to a blender or food processor. Blend or process until smooth.
If desired, add in mint, lime juice and avocado. Blend or process until just combined.
Serve as is or spread over toast.
