Here's a healthy, delicious snack that does not take a lot of time to fix. Edamame, green soybeans, are in their pods. You can buy them frozen or if you are lucky get them fresh out of your garden. By adding seasonings, you can make this so tasty. Everyone will love it.
Step 1: INGREDIENTS
1 10oz. bag of edamame
Roasted Sesame oil
Step 2: Cook Beans
Using a medium sized sauce pan, fill it with water, add some salt -about 1 tablespoon--
and add the soybeans.
Step 3: Boil
Cook beans in the uncovered saucepan on medium-high heat for about 3-4 minutes. Stir occationally. Check to see if they are cooked and tender, not mushy.
Step 4: Drain
Drain water off and leave in the pan.
Step 5: Add seasonings
Add some tamari and a few dashes of toasted sesame oil.
Step 6: Toss and serve
Toss pods around so the sesame oil and tamari nicely coat them.
Serve and enjoy!
If you have never eaten soybeans before, with your fingers, take the pod and pop the beans into your mouth. Don't eat the pod, pitch it. They are fun to eat!
(*note* traditionally, they are boiled in salt water, but other seasonings can make your snack more interesting - just experiment and add flavorings you like.)
