Edamame (eh-dah-MAH-meh), the Japanese name for soybeans, are harvested when the soybeans are still green and sweet tasting.

1½ tsp, minced

ginger root

1 tsp, fresh, peeled and grated

red pepper flakes

edamame (shelled)

10 oz, package frozen shelled, thawed

table salt

tsp

Instructions

  1. Heat the oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the garlic, ginger, and crushed red pepper; cook, stirring frequently, until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add the edamame and salt; cook, stirring, until heated through, about 4 minutes. Yields about 1⁄2 cup per serving.
