Spicy Edamame and a treat!


I got Edamame last week in my farm box, they are soybeans and very healthy rich in protein, fiber, vitamin K, folate and omega 3.  I have never bought it before and didn't know what to do with it, but fear not we have the internet, so I got some idea's and came up with this:

Ingredients:
  • 2 big bunches of edamame, clean and get the pods of
  • salt
  • masala powder to taste
  • oregano
Method:
  1. boil the edamame in water for about 10 min, then remove the little beans from the pods
  2. heat canola oil in a pan with some salt, masala powder, curry leaves and oregano, then stir fry the edamame for about 5 minutes
Thats it so simple good to accompany a meal or as a tasty high protein and filling snack.
 and heres a treat for you all our daughter used a spoon all by herself today, I am so proud of her....

  14. Oh my word - that video was SOOOOO adorable - yay, Jasmine!!!! I just love your voice - do some more videos where you just talk so I can listen to your accent! We discovered edamame about a year ago and we steam it in the pods with some kosher salt and then eat it as a snack. It's kind of fun to pop them out of the pod and eat them. YUMMMM ~ ♥

  24. I always make sure to have some frozen edamame bags in the freezer,that way I can add them to soups or salads, or just eat them plain.

    I like this new idea I never thought about.
