Yep... we are losing another member of our "get-together-eat-drink-and-gossip" club. She got an awesome job and she is moving to a far far away land with a slick chance of ever coming back (unless she can't deal with the separation from us). I think we should start some kind of recruitment program to try to fill the opening... so if you are funny, a little bit sarcastic, love to eat, drink, and gossip... send us your application! Last weekend we had one of our final get-togethers and we started it with a super healthy and super delicious edamame dip as an appetizer! Well, we started it with a great drink... but for that you will have to come back next time. Here is the recipe for a dip:
* 1 12oz bag frozen shelled edamame, thawed
* 1 cup plain yogurt
* 1 tbsp lemon juice
* 2 tbsp fresh chopped basil
* 1 tsp garlic powder
* 1 tbsp olive oil
* salt and pepper
1. Combine all the ingredients in a food processor and process until smooth and well combined.
2. Refrigerate for 30 minutes and serve with pita chips.
Fresh, creamy and nutritious. I don't think you can find an appetizer that is better for you than this one. There are only healthy ingredients in it... yogurt, edamame, lemon juice and olive oil - pure health on a plate... and it tastes fantastic too! If you are curious about our girly fruity drink that goes great with the dip... come back in a few days!
