Edamame-Garlic Puree

This fun and easy side dish is packed with soy protein.

Bring 2 quarts (8 cups) of water to a boil in a large saucepan. Add 4 cups frozen shelled edamame and 10 peeled garlic cloves; cook for 5 minutes.

Drain, reserving 1/2 cup of the cooking liquid.

Combine the edamame, the garlic, the reserved liquid, and 1/4 cup soft silken tofu in a blender or food processor; process until smooth. Add 1 and 1/2 teaspoons lemon juice, 1/2 tsp. salt, and 1/8 tsp. black pepper, pulsing to combine.

2/3 cup is a side serving of 180 calories - this recipe makes enough to serve 5. Serve it anywhere you'd normally think to have mashed potatoes!

frozen shelled edamame $6.98
soft silken tofu $2.00
