Avocado and Edamame Dip

A high protein dip suitable for Dairy Free, Raw and Vegan diets.



A nutritious twist on the avocado dip, guacamole. Here, the edamame beans provide protein and, being low fat, their inclusion in an avocado dip makes it no longer a calorie extravaganza; and it is also a satisfying sandwich filler.

Add your own variations. I have enjoyed it with tomatoes, chilli, spices such as paprika and sumac and with spring onion.
