Crispy Edamame

Ryan and I have loved edamame and we recently discovered that Hayes loves it too! Of course I didn't really enjoy shelling beans for him to eat, so I decided to hunt for pre-shelled beans and came up with this tasty way of cooking them. Enjoy!

Frozen shelled edamame
olive oil
parmesan cheese

Thaw your edamame in a colander submerged in cold water. Once thawed, dry on paper towels. And then take a picture of your beans because they are so pretty and green.

Heat some oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add beans and season with whatever floats your boat. I chose garlic powder, onion powder, and salt. Cook while stirring frequently until beans are slightly browned. I actually covered the skillet for a few minutes at the end to ensure the beans were tender enough for my liking.  Once they are done, top with parmesan cheese and serve as a side...perhaps with some baked chicken topped with fresh bruschetta. Enjoy!

  1. We LOVE Edamame! P.S. LF loves it too and part of that reason is shelling her own! It keeps her busy which allows us to have a real conversation at dinner every once in a while lol!
