Meatless Monday! Edamame Grilled Cheese
This is from my friend, Andrea. I don't know where she found it. It was good and a great way to put some homegrown 'maters into yet another sandwich :-) And those are my Delikatessa Cucumbers.
Garlic (calls for 3 cloves of roasted garlic, but I just use the jarred minced garlic)
1 tsp. olive oil
1 12 oz. pkg. frozen shelled edamame
1/4 cup lemon juice
1/2 tsp. ground cumin
1/3 cup snipped parsley (optional)
Whole grain bread
Mont. Jack cheese or Mozz.
Cook soybeans according to pkg. Drain, rinse. Combine edamame, lemon juice, 1/4 cup water, 1/2 tsp. salt, cumin and garlic in blender or food processor. Process until smooth. Transfer to bowl and stir in parsley if desired.
Assemble each sandwich with edamame spread, cheese and tomato slices. Cook as you would a regular grilled cheese.
