I have been having a lot of fun in the kitchen lately. So much so, that I now have more pictures than postings! Whew!
Monday Night I made Sweet Mini Peppers with an Edamame Pate. I served the peppers on a bed of Arugula with Lemon Vinaigrette.
I still had some pesto from last week and I needed to used the rest of it. (I dislike wasting food.) I had wanted to make this dish last weekend, but I never got the opportunity to…till now!!
So I started with some edamame (soybeans)…
I added the pesto from the other day. Recipe here, and then some avocado into the processor…
I also added 1 garlic clove and the juice of one lemon to help it mix a bit better in the Food Processor.
Here we are!!! Ready to use!!!
Edamame Avocado Basil Pate
2 cups Fresh Edamame
2 T. Spinach Basil Pesto
2 T. Lemon Juice
9 Mini Sweet Peppers
Preparation: Put Edamame in Food Processor with “S” blade. Process Edamame for a moment. Add basil pesto, avocado, and Lemon Juice. Process. Add a little bit of water if needed.
Next I deveined the mini peppers and cut the tops off of them. I sliced the sides and filled them with the pate and garnished them with a few pine nuts and basil!
I served this on a bed of fresh Arugula with some lemon vinaigrette I have been working on as well. (Recipe will be posted when it is perfected a bit more!!
