Cook soybeans according to package. Drain and rinse with cold water. Squeeze 3-4 garlic cloves from bulb into food processor. Wrap and refrigerate remaining garlic for another use.

Add cooked soybeans, lemon juice, 1/4 cup water, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and lemon pepper to food processor. Cover and process until smooth. Transfer to bowl. Stir in parsley.
