Edamame Spread with Furikake

Edamame Spread with Furikake

Lately, I’ve been reading a lot of cookbooks for entertainment and came across an edamame puree recipe while browsing through David Chang’s Momofuku cookbook. The cookbook recipe creates a puree that is very smooth without any chunks or texture, and forms a sauce for a steamed fish dish as part of a dinner meal. But in my version, I prefer to keep things a little textured and eat it along with some crackers as a delicious afternoon snack.

Edamame Spread with Furikake

Here's a great way to spruce up frozen edamame. Served with crackers, this is a protein-rich healthy afternoon snack.

  1. In a small grinder, add the edamame along with the water, salt, soy sauce and pulse until smooth. Adjust the amount of water as necessary if you’d like a smoother or more textured spread.
