Wow, weather has been pretty dandy in the past few days. I am not going to complain about the temperature after what I had been through in New York this past winter. ;) I was at the market the other day and got some fresh edamame and radishes. As I mentioned before, I love the zesty taste of lemons and limes especially in the summer. So I use a lot of them in my food. This pesto recipe is no exception. I love pesto because there are so many ways to enjoy it. You can use it as spread on breads, dip for snacks, and sauce for pasta/noodles. I usually make a big bowl and leave it in the fridge for the multiple usage during the week. Give it a try sometime. :)
Servings: 1 bowl of pesto
Preparation Time: 5-10 minutes
Cooking Time: 5 minutes
300-350g edamame, cooked
1-2 garlic cloves
1 handful roasted pine nuts
1-2 lime juice and zest
extra-virgin olive oil
1) Add the cooked and shelled edamame, coriander, pine nuts, and garlic to the blender. Blend.
2) Add 1/2 cup of olive oil* and lemon zest and juice to blend more until smooth. Season.
* Feel free to add more oil and adjust the seasoning to suit your taste. I like to add more after blending.
