  • 3 Tbs. peanut butter
  • 2 Tbs. low-sodium tamari
  • 2 Tbs. fresh lime juice
  • ½ tsp. sriracha or chile-garlic sauce

2. Place ginger and garlic in bowl of food processor; process until minced. Add edamame, tofu, cilantro, peanut butter, tamari, lime juice, and sriracha. Process until dip is chunky-smooth. Refrigerate in sealed container several hours to allow flavors to develop.

I brought this to a potluck and everyone loved it, it was their favorite out of the 4 I made. If you don't like spicy food, you may want cut down on the sriracha.

This is tasty, and very reminiscent of the Indonesian Tofu-Peanut Fondue recipe from the February 2007 issue! The dip wins for portability.
