Edamame Pesto Spread or Dip

3 cups Edamame, shelled & blanched
1/4 cup olive oil
Basil(1/2 bunch, or 1/4 cup Gourmet Garden Basil Blend)
1/4 cup raw almonds
1/2 cup Parmesan Cheese, grated
salt & pepper to taste
Sriracha sauce, a few drops
3 cloves Garlic, minced
juice of one lemon

Blend all of the above ingredients together in food processor, add water if needed, continue to scrape down sides until you get a pretty smooth consistency or leave chunky if you prefer.  
Slice Ciabatta bread into toast size pieces.  Spray with butter flavor non-stick spray and broil just until crisp.  Spread toasts with dip.
Also a tasty alternative to Mayonnaise on sandwiches.
My kids LOVE this.
