If you're proud of your dip (and you will be if it's homemade), do something about it: bring a batch to every party until you're the "dip person." This spicy, healthy edamame spread is a good place to start. 

We've bought more tubs of dip than we're willing to count. It's time to make our own, which is why we picked up a copy of Crackers & Dips. If you're proud of your dip (and you will be if it's homemade), do something about it: bring a batch to every party until you're the "dip person." This spicy, healthy edamame spread is a good place to start. 

The fresh, clean flavor of this thick soybean-based dip, or schmear, as I like to call it, goes well with the sesame seeds on crispy wonton triangles and the soy and mirin flavors of senbei. It’s even more virtuous served with thinly sliced carrots and blanched pea pods. The heat from the wasabi will intensify with time; so if you prefer just a whisper of wasabi, add it right before serving.
