Edamame-ginger wrap


Yesterday I was craving a veggie wrap for lunch. I didn't want regular hummus, and as I scanned the cupboard I realized all I had was dried beans. Then I remembered a bag of edamame in the freezer. This chunky protein-rich spread is super easy and makes a quick, healthy lunch possible.

Chunky edamame-ginger spread
1.5 c cooked edamame
1 in knob of ginger, minced
juice from half a lime
juice from one lemon
dash of sea salt
1 tbsp sesame (or walnut) oil
dash of gomasio (optional)

Add all ingredients except oil to blender. Pulse a few times, then whisk in the oil, and pulse a few more times. If you're not a fan of chunky dips and want the consistency to be creamier, then blend on high for longer.

Now assemble your wrap. I used an Ezekiel sprouted grain wrap. I buy them frozen and store them in the freezer, so they'll keep longer. Whenever I want to eat one, I heat in a pan over low heat to thaw. I smeared on the edamame spread, then added lettuce, carrot sticks, avocado slices, and red onion. Sprinkle with sea salt and cracked pepper and a dash of freshly squeezed lime. Now roll up. The avocado and red onion really make this wrap tasty. I love the addition of ginger to the spread, as it provides a nice spicy kick. I hope you enjoy this refreshing lunch as much as I did.

I just enjoyed an edamame salad last night. I can't get enough of it lately. These wraps sound like another excuse to eat more!

Oh, do try the Himalayan pink salt from Sustainable Sourcing (here's their website: https://secure.sustainablesourcing.com). It's just so good on things like this! Thanks for posting your recipe!!
