08/24/09 - Edamame, Soy Beans to Munch

We aren't sure of where we got the idea for this dish, but it is simplicity itself and a great crowd pleaser. Start with a 12 ounce bag of frozen edamame, soy beans. Make sure you get the shelled ones unless you really like shelling beans. Chop up 3 or 4 cloves of garlic and perhaps an inch of fresh ginger root. Heat a tablespoon or two of sesame oil in a frying pan or wok. You might as well set the stove at full blast for this. Dump in the beans. Toss them around. Let them cook through. Wait for a few of them to get a bit seared. Remove the pan from the stove. Toss in the garlic and ginger. Then splash in a few teaspoons of soy sauce, to taste.

That's it.
