Edamame Dip

Sometimes I go looking for a recipe, others they just come to me. I saw this yesterday on the Bon Appetit blog and thought it would be tasty. As it turned out, not as Auden friendly as I had suspected.

Edamame Dip with Pita Chips
3 pita breads, split horizontally, each round cut into 1 1/2-inch wedges
1 12-ounce bag frozen shelled edamame (2 1/3 cups), unthawed
1/4 cup olive oil
2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
3 tablespoons minced fresh basil plus sprigs for garnish

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Scatter pita pieces on large rimmed baking sheet. Sprinkle with salt. Bake until crisp, 15 minutes; cool.

Cook edamame in large saucepan of boiling salted water until tender, 5 minutes. Drain, reserving 3/4 cup cooking liquid.

Place edamame, oil, and 1/4 cup reserved cooking liquid in processor. Blend until smooth, drizzling in 1/4 cup cooking liquid and lemon juice. Season dip with salt and pepper. Blend in more cooking liquid by tablespoonfuls if too thick. Add minced basil; pulse until basil is just mixed in (do not puree).

Transfer dip to bowl. Garnish dip with basil sprigs; serve with pita chips.
