 Edamame are green soybeans. Look for them in the frozen food section. For an interesting presentation, break the crackers into pieces or shards.

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).
