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

Optional Add-ins

  • 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.
