I’m always looking for make-over opportunities for foods and this Edamame Bean Gorgonzola dip combines two of my favorite appetizers – edamame and gorgonzola cheese! The edamame beans have a mild, slightly nutty flavor that really takes on the more sharp and salty flavors from the gorgonzola. The texture is perfect with the edamame providing the more hearty and textured bite and the gorgonzola bringing the creamy feel. This is a must-make appetizer for entertaining or anytime-snack during the week.
And, it couldn’t be easier. Just buy the frozen shelled edamame beans and toss them with the other ingredients into the mini food processor and blend until smooth. That’s it!
