freshly steamed edamame sprinkled with sea salt


... mm, mm.

To make edamame, first wash them and remove any stems, sticks etc.  Then put them into the steamer and steam them for about 10 minutes until the bean inside is cooked but still al-dente (you'll have to test a couple out to make sure they're ready).

After we drained them, we sprinkled them with sea salt.


And then we ate them.  Well, we sort of devoured them really.  They're so much fun to eat!  We made about 3 cups of edamame and we finished it in about 10 minutes.  I think we broke a record.  I'd only made frozen edamame before, but fresh steamed edamame is about 25x better.

Enjoy!
