Limey Dip

This flavorful dip is a good source of protein, gorgeously green, and very fresh tasting. It not only encourages the rampant eating of veggies — it also has vegetables actually in it already!

Hands-On Time: 5 minutes
Ready In: 15 minutes
Yield: 2 1/4 cups


    1 (10-ounce) package of frozen shelled edamame
    1 teaspoon grated zest of 1 lime plus 1 1/2 tablespoons of its juice
    1/2 cup low-fat cottage cheese
    1 teaspoon kosher salt
    1 teaspoon sugar
    1 clove garlic, pressed (optional)


  1. Cook edamame in boiling, salted water for 10 minutes (it will have come back to a boil for only the final five minutes or so). Drain, then whir in a food processor with remaining ingredients, adding a tablespoon or two of warm water if it seems too thick. Serve with raw vegetables.
