My new favorite food from the fresh farm produce. I LOVE it. I had never had it before this year and it has been fun to try something new. I wasn't sure what to do with it. I figured I could cook it up (I use either the microwave or steam or boil it). Then I let it cool a tiny bit and then I enlist the girls for their help. They race to see who can pop it out of the pods the fastest. The looser sets the table.
I have done my usual with it. Stir fry some other veggies ( squash - I have gotten TONS of that this year) and onions. Toss it with whole wheat pasta add the edamame and spinach and top with cashews. For flavor we add soy sauce.
I seriously LOVE this dish. It is yummy. It has a Chinese food taste, and the edamame adds a nutty flavor. Even the kids like it. If my goal for joining the farm produce was to get me to try new things, than it has worked. I now am a fan of edamame.
