It's fast and easy and makes for delicious snacks, light meals, and entertaining (akin to hummus--but even better).
Ingredients
  Canned chickpeas 2 Cup (32 tbs), drained, rinsed
  Silken tofu 12 1⁄3 Ounce, drained (12.3 ounce)
  Fresh lemon juice 1⁄3 Cup (5.33 tbs)
  Garlic 3 Clove (15 gm), minced
  Ground cumin 2 Teaspoon
  Hot smoked paprika 1 Teaspoon
  Toasted dark sesame oil 1 Tablespoon
  Fresh flat-leafed parsley 1⁄3 Cup (5.33 tbs), chopped
  Extra virgin olive oil 1 Tablespoon
  Frozen shelled edamame 1 Pound
  Garlic 4 Clove (20 gm), peeled
  Extra virgin olive oil 4 Tablespoon
  Fresh lime juice 3 Tablespoon
  Honey 2 Teaspoon
  Salt 1 Teaspoon
  Cracked black pepper 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Cilantro 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs), chopped
Directions

Enlightened Hummus:
In a food processor purée all of the ingredients except the olive oil and parsley until smooth. Transfer to a medium bowl and stir in the parsley and salt and pepper to taste. Drizzle the hummus with the olive oil and garnish with parsley leaves. Serve with raw (or blanched) vegetables and pita. Makes about 3 cups.

Edamame Dip with fresh Lime & Cilantro:
Cook the edamame and garlic cloves in a large pot of boiling, salted water for 3 minutes. Reserve 3/4 cup cooking liquid, then drain edamame and garlic in a colander. Rinse under cold water until cool.

Purée the garlic, oil, and 2 cups of the edamame in a food processor until smooth. With motor running, add 1/2 cup of the reserved edamame-cooking liquid in a stream. Add the remaining 1 cup edamame, lime juice, honey, salt and pepper and pulse until slightly lumpy. Add remaining 1/4 cup cooking liquid to thin if desired.

Transfer to a small bowl, stir in cilantro and season with salt and pepper to taste. Makes about 2 cups.
