Give healthy, protein-packed edamame a flavor boost with different sauces and spices.
F&W Executive Food Editor Tina Ujlaki applies her incredible cooking knowledge to explaining what to do with a variety of interesting ingredients.
A little light went off the first time I tried Daniel Orr’s olive-oil-and-spice–tossed edamame recipe, and I haven’t eaten a plain pod since. The genius lies in the fact that to get to the beans, you have to sort of bite them out of the pods anyway, so why not add flavor to suit your mood. Some of my favorite iterations include olive oil and curry powder, soy sauce and toasted sesame oil, and cumin, roasted pumpkin seed oil and lime.
