Recipes and Songs

a recipe:

REALLY GOOD MOTHERFUCKING HUMMUSY SPINACH DIP. my roommate calls it 'green crack'

3/4 cup frozen edamame soybeans, shucked (we buy the podless ones at trader joe's)
2 cups spinach, tightly packed (i assume the recipe means fresh--we used frozen, which is already plenty tightly packed, and so you can probably use less if you're doing frozen spinach. we did, iirc)
2-3 garlic cloves
1/2 cup tahini
2 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp flax, hemp, or grapeseed oil (our flax oil had gone bad, so we substituted sesame oil and used much less, like 1/2 tbsp, because it's such a strong oil)
1 tbsp lemon juice
1 tbsp tamari or whatever soy sauce
1-2 tsp hot sauce (asian preferable, but we forgot that altogether and it was still good, just not spicy)
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper

steam edamame til thawed adn bright green. throw all that stuff into a food processor and blend til smooth. makes approx 2 cups.

this seems like it would be good as a dip for pita, or on crackers, or as a sandwich spread maybe. we were tasting how it turned out on tortilla chips and kept refilling the bowl. now i have really really overeaten. but it's good stuff. addictive despite being healthy.
