This edamame dip is rich in protein, filling, fresh and absolutely delicious.  Bright green and sprinkled with some toasted sesame seeds it’s great as the centerpiece of a vegetable platter but also delicious on sandwiches, in a wrap or anywhere that you would use hummus.  Feel free to substitute the parsley with cilantro or basil or use tahini instead of the avocado.
