I am not a vegetarian, actually consider myself a meat and potatoes (with gravy) kinda gal, but when I came across these I definitely stopped eating chips and excess amounts of chocolate!Not only are edamame a great source of Protein, but also a great snack.
Preparation – the easy way:
Place frozen edamame into a microwavable dish, put about 1/4 inch of water in and cover with lid. Cook in Microwave on high for approximately 3 minutes or until steaming hot. be careful not to overcook.
Remove them from the microwave, pour out the water and toss the beans in 1/4tbsp of sea salt or to taste, Enjoy! (I prefer to dip them in Franks RedHot hot sauce for an added kick.
How to eat:
pick up a pod with fingers place entire pod in your mouth, gently bit down with your teeth and while sliding it out of your mouth the beans should just pop right out. Or you can simply pop the bean out with your fingers and enjoy that way. Don’t eat the shell. I’d take a picture of myself eating them but I’m not that talented. Hope you are eble to enjoy them as much as I do!
They are great accompanied by a cold beer 🙂
