One of the enduring favorites on my website, this recipe is addictive. Not only because it tastes
so darn good, but also because it only takes minutes to blend up and devour. However, the
recipe only works in a high-speed blender or food processor. Use it as a dip with raw vegetables
and crackers, or spread it on sandwiches or wraps. Totally guilt-free, super-healthy, alkalizing,
and nutrient-dense, this one’s a winner on all fronts.
Makes 2 1/2 cups (550g)
Throw the oil, edamame, spinach, lemon juice, tahini, onion, garlic, cumin, pepper flakes, and
salt into your high-speed blender or food processor and blend on high or process for about
2 minutes, until smooth and creamy. Stop the machine periodically and scrape down the sides
of the container to fully incorporate the ingredients. A food processor will give the mixture
a coarse consistency, which some people prefer. Tweak flavors to taste. (You may like more
lemon juice, garlic, pepper flakes, or salt.) Serve topped with the sesame seeds and parsley.
