Wow, this dip is amazing! Used sriracha for my hot sauce. So spicy, gingery and delicious! Works wonderfully as a dip or sandwich spread.

Delicious, healthy and quick! Great dip. I followed the recipe exactly except for adding a touch more salt, and using a single deseeded red chilli for spice. Came out perfect.

Delicious asian influenced dip This is a very addictive dip as well as versatile, would be great on pita or in a wrap with julienne carrots, cucumbers and sprouts. High protein and fiber, low in calories as well. I substituted wasabi paste for hot sauce.

This is my go-to dip for get togethers, potlucks, or entertaining at home. So easy to make and I get to share my love for edamame beans-which most people haven't heard of or simply don't know what to do with.

An easy to make and healthy dip I used half the amount of ginger, and substituted a fresh habanero pepper and a tsp of horseradish instead of the hot sauce. Turned out great. I love spicey, next time I'll use 2 habaneros. I eat the dip with fresh veggies...red bell pepper, cucumber and jicama.

New...different...great! I made the recipe as written, but left out the tahini and used the whole 12oz bag of edamame. The ginger flavor is very strong, so I might put in less next time. Very quick and easy to make with ingredients I usually have on hand. I took it to a party and had lots of requests for the recipe! Pros: easy to make Cons: very strong flavors

Great consistency Love this! Super simple to make; I even found pre-cooked edamame, so I just had to shell them and throw them in the blender. The fresh ginger/soy sauce combo really makes it.

I must have made this wrong or something, because it did not turn out good at all...I don't have a food processor, so i used a blender instead and the edamame just didn't turn out right, and it just tasted strange to me, I don't know why...
