A little bit of sweet soybeans or edamame serves up a whopping 9 grams of fiber, 11 grams of protein, 10% of a daily requirements of vitamins C and iron, and 8% of a vitamin A. This crunchy dip is a great way to start incorporating edamame into your diet.
Cook edamame according to package directions. Drain, reserving cooking liquid; rinse with cold water; drain again.
Place cooked edamame, and remaining ingredients into a food processor and chop. You may add more olive oil or the reserved edamame cooking liquid, if you prefer a smoother spread.
Season with salt and pepper.
Stuff in pita pockets with lettuce, tomato and fresh mushrooms.
