Spicy Edamame in the Pod

I’m always looking for a healthy snack that satisfies my need for spice. I’ve had edamame in the pods before, but only steamed and sometimes lightly salted. So I had this idea… Let the pods sit in a spicy Asian marinade for a few days. Yep. Success.

Here’s How to Do it:

Cook the pods first. Bring a pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add the edamame in the pod and reduce heat to medium.

Simmer about 3 to 5 minutes, or until the pods are bright green. Be careful not to over cook them.

Drain and run cold water over the pods to stop the cooking process.

Place all the other ingredients into a gallon sized ziplock bag. Squish together to mix, then add the edamame pods. Gently squeeze to cover every bit of the pods.

Seal the bag and refrigerate overnight.

Place them in a bowl when you’re ready to eat them. (I include and empty bowl for the pods after I’ve eaten the beans.)

Put the whole pod in your mouth and gently press the seeds out with your tongue.

 

Slowly remove the pod (with all that marinade coming off into your mouth) and enjoy those beans!!
