Ingredients

  • 1 lb frozen shelled edamame (about 1-1/4 cups/300 mL)
  • 1/2 cup shredded fresh mint
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 3/4 teaspoons finely grated lemon rind
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 3/4 teaspoons salt
  • 36 gluten-free crackers
  • 36 whole-grain crackers
  • 1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese (optional)
Tomatoes:
  • 2 cups cherry tomatoes halved
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 pinch pepper
  • 1 pinch granulated sugar

Method

Tomatoes: Toss together tomatoes, oil, salt, pepper and sugar. Bake, cut side up, on parchment paper–lined baking sheet in 300°F (150°C) oven until shrivelled and dry in centre, about 1-1/2 hours.

Meanwhile, in small saucepan of boiling water, cook edamame until tender, about 5 minutes. Drain, reserving 1/4 cup (60 mL) of the cooking liquid; let cool.

Rinse edamame under cold water; transfer to food processor. Add half of the mint, the oil, garlic, lemon rind, lemon juice, salt and reserved cooking liquid; purée until smooth.

Spoon generous 1 tsp (5 mL) purée onto each cracker; top with tomatoes, remaining mint, and feta cheese (if using).
