Edamame Guacamole

Edamame has been a long-time favorite snack of mine. They’re so good I can eat a seemingly endless amount of them right from their pods. This recipe calls for them to be incorporated into a creative take on guacamole, which I love just as much as enjoying them au naturel.
The problem with guacamole is that most people want to dip salted, deep-fried tortilla chips into it. Don’t do it! Skip the chip in favor of raw vegetables, such as carrots or bell pepper strips. Or, do as I do, and dip with steamed asparagus.
