Edamame and Avocado Spread

Super easy recipe. This is great on crackers, but is even better as a sandwich filling on a toasted whole wheat pita with a slice of Muenster.

Original recipe makes 2 cups


1 (16 ounce) package frozen shelled edamame (green soybeans)
1 avocado – peeled, pitted, and cubed
1 clove garlic, minced

1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
