Yields 1 – 2 Servings
Serving Size: 1 cup of pods
2 cups edamame pods
1 tbsp freshly grated ginger
1 tsp lemon zest
2 tsp olive oil
1/2 tsp salt and pepper for taste (optional if needed)
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1. Place the edamame pods into a bowl completely filled with water. Place the microwave-safe bowl into the microwave and cook for ~ 2 minutes. The pods will become steamed. If you like, you can steam them like you would vegetables on the stovetop as well.
2. Pour out the water and place the pods into a clean bowl. Drizzle them with olive oil, freshly grated ginger, lemon juice, garlic powder, and salt/pepper if you need. Massage the spices and oil into the pods by mixing them around either with clean hands or a spoon.
3. Eat either warm or cold! Remember that the actual pod is not edible, you eat the edamame beans from inside. Simply bite on the pod so you get the seasoning that we put on top on the tip of your tongue and then squeeze the beans out with your teeth and enjoy!
