1/2 Fresh jalapeño pepper, minced (optional)
2 Tbsp green onions, minced
1/2 tsp salt (more to taste)
1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper (more to taste if needed)
1 Tbsp olive oil
In a food processor (or blender) pulse the edamame until it reaches a paste like consistency, about 1 minute. (Be sure to scrape the sides down if needed!).

Season with Salt & Pepper to your taste preferences, Serve immediately.
