This is a super-healthy snack with healthy oils from sesame seeds, lean protein from soybeans, and antioxidants from the Sencha or matcha tea. Lemon helps your body access the healthy compounds in green tea, as well.
Steam the frozen beans to heat through and soften a bit. (Use a vegetable steamer or just put them in a bowl with an inch of water in the bottom, put a plate over the bowl as a lid, and microwave for 3 minutes. Take care as you remove the bowl and take off the lid…it will all be pretty hot!)
Add the beans, tahini, pesto, lemon juice, Sencha powder or matcha tea, and water to the bowl of a food processor, and blend until smooth. You may need to add a bit more water, and scrape down the sides a couple of times to get it smooth and creamy.
Serve with fresh veggie sticks, pita chips, or if you’ve been stuck in your house for a week…whatever crackers you still have left!
