Edamame and Mint Dip

#loveyourleftovers Packing a nutritional punch all while being low in calories, it’s no wonder edamame beans have found their way into our hearts (and tummies) and we hope you agree — this dip combines zesty lemon and refreshing mint with your leftover edamame, a relationship meant to bean!


1 cup frozen edamame beans
Juice of ¼ lemon
1–2 teaspoons olive oil
½ teaspoon Dijon mustard
¼ teaspoon salt
2–3 tablespoons water
1 tablespoon finely chopped mint

To Serve

Veggie sticks or raw veggies of your choice (e.g. carrot, capsicum, cherry tomatoes)


Bring a small pot of salted water to the boil.

1. Cook edamame in pot of boiling water for 5 minutes, until softened. Drain and run under cold water to cool, then drain well.

2. Place edamame and all remaining edamame and mint dip ingredients (except mint) in a food processor or blender and blitz, until smooth. Add a little more water if ingredients are not combining.

3. Stir through mint. To serve, use as a dip with your raw veggie sticks.
