Edamame is the star of this delicious green dip that will both let you snack and get all the benefits of soy. The umami flavor of the soy sauce plus sesame oil and lemon combo is great for perking up your palate, especially if you’re in treatment and experiencing taste changes. Add in some whole-grain chips or veggie slices, and you’ve got a great snack or small meal if you’re finding large meals to be challenging. Get out your blender and get dipping!
