Hot Flash Dip

Before this rain and dreary cold weather started, I swear I was starting to have hot flashes. My doctor suggested eating more soy. Now that the warm weather has left us, probably for good, I’m back to feeling cold all the time. In response to my doctor’s orders, I made this Edamame Dip. It’s delicious, and easy enough to make that I’m still eating it even without the flashes.



  • 1 bag of frozen shelled edamame. (You could used soy beans in the shell… but more work for this recipe.)
  • 1 cup silken tofu, drained
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 3 cloves of minced garlic
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • juice of one lime
  • dash of hot pepper flakes
  • dash of cumin


  1. Cook soybeans in boiling water according to package directions.
  2. Pour soybeans and remaining ingredients into food processor and process until smooth.
  3. Taste for salt and add more if you’d like.


You can eat this right away wtih pita chips or vegetables, or store in the fridge for a few days.

  1. I love edamame! This sounds wonderful and I must try it. My son is a vegetarian, and I’m always looking for something that might please his palate. It looks a bit like guacamole. Now, I have to go to the store, Susie!

  2. I’ve never tried edamame although many people recommend it. Please don’t mention hot flashes!!!! I have JUST got them 🙁 The BA thinks it’s hilarious but I am NOT seeing anything funny about it whatsoever! I’ve tried a sage based tablet but so far it’s not making much of an impact 🙁
    Enjoy your dip and think of me…..
