This pesto, much like the classic basil pesto is not just limited to pasta. Try this topping on salmon, tossed with shrimp or tofu or even thinned out as a dressing for salads. Whatever you put it on, the fresh flavors will have you coming back for more.
Edamame Pesto – makes about 2 cups worth
- 1 cup cooked edamame, shelled
- 1 cup cilantro
- 1/2 cup basil
- juice from 1/2 of a lime
- 4 small cloves of garlic
- 2 Tbsp olive oil
- 2 Tbsp toasted sesame oil
Process all ingredients until desired consistency. Add a little water if mixture is too thick.
*I also drizzled a bit of sesame oil over the pasta before serving
