Edamame are soy bean pods. They resemble large, plump, lumpy green beans.
2 cups raw edamame, or frozen and defrosted
Raw Honey Mustard Dressing
Vegans can’t eat honey, so this dressing is the next best thing to traditional honey mustard. Agave comes from a cactus.
3/4 cup almonds (omit if anyone is allergic to nuts)
2 tablespoons organic mustard powder
1 tablespoon agave nectar
2 tablespoons lemon juice
dash of salt
1/3 cup water
Soak the almond in the water for a couple of hours, or overnight.
When you are ready to make the dressing:
Strain the almonds, but keep the water.
In a food processing bowl, place the almonds.
Let the food processor run until they are finely ground. Scrape down the sides of the bowl as needed.
Add all of the other ingredients except the water. Pulse several times to combine.
With the processor running, slowly add the drained off water the almonds had been soaking in until you have a smooth dressing that is your desired thickness and consistency.
Scrape out the dressing into a small serving bowl.
Place the bowl on a serving platter.
Surround the bowl of dressing with the edamame and serve.
