#2014BloggerChallenge - Edamame Recipe

I love edamame! For those who don't know what edamame is, it's basically cooked soybeans; popular in Japanese, Korean and Chinese cultures.

Edamame is simple, fast and easy to make. It serves as a great snack or a side dish for dinner!

While edamame is cheap at sushi stores, I still refuse to pay $2-4 for a small bowl of soybeans when I can just make them at home!

To make your own edamame, you'll need:
  • (Frozen) soybeans (uncooked) [I got mine from Superstore and T&T]
  • Pot of boiling water
  • Salt (or preferred seasoning)
1. To begin, fill your pot with water and let it reach a boiling point.
2. Put in your desire amount of soybeans and let it boil for about 10 minutes on high.
You don't want to boil it for too long or your beans will be extremely soggy.
3. If you want, you can put salt into your pot at this point. As you can see below, I sprinkled some salt into mines. However, I love my beans to be salty!


4. Once cooked, transfer the beans into a bowl and let it cool down! :)
5. Add salt or preferred seasoning.


I layered salt after a new batch of soybeans is put into this basket. I like my salt.


If you want it like the how they serve in a Japanese restaurant, you can let it cool down or run it through cold water before seasoning them. I just eat them once they're cooled down enough to touch.

Enjoy!
