1 medium or 2 small garlic cloves
1 bag frozen, shelled edamame, thawed, small handful reserved
2 tsp tahini
1 tsp cumin
kosher salt and black pepper, to taste
Juice of 1/2 lemon
Extra virgin olive oil, for garnish
Black pepper, for garnish

1. In a food processor, pulse garlic until it is broken down into bits.
2. Add the rest of the ingredients and whirl, adding water as necessary to achieve desired consistency, until smooth.
3. Spoon into a bowl and garnish with reserved edamame, a generous drizzle of extra virgin olive oil, and a healthy crack of freshly ground black pepper.

Now that you have all that leftover pesto, try blending it in the food processor with a can of rinsed white beans. Use it as a dip for crusty bread, crackers, or fresh veggies. Or, of course, you could serve it over pasta, sneaking in loads of extra vitamins, minerals, and fiber.

Now that’s a reason to strut around in your underwear. And, let’s face it–after hibernating during that lame excuse for a winter that we just had, you probably wanna get that rear back in shape. This will help.
