Spicy Edamame That's Also A Nutritious Snack.

Spicy Edamame
Soybeans, also known as edamame, are cooked and coated with a spicy kimchee sauce.

2 cups frozen edamame (in pods)
1 tablespoon sesame oil
1 tablespoon minced garlic
1 tablespoon minced ginger
1-2 teaspoons soy sauce
2 teaspoons sriracha sauce
1/2 teaspoon sesame seeds

Boil the edamame, in enough water to cover them, for 5-8 minutes then drain.

While the edamame is boiling, simmer the garlic, and ginger in the oil over low heat. Then add the drained edamame stirring and tossing to coat with the oil mixture.

Pour in the soy sauce and sriracha and turn up the heat so that the liquid boils off while mixing to coat well.

Turn off the heat and remove edamame to serving dishes (with an empty trash bowl on the side). Sprinkle with sesame seeds and serve.

To eat you just suck the tender beans out of the spicy coated pods (make sure you suck all that spice and oil off the pods and don't forget to lick your fingers too--it's so good) then discard the pod.

Makes 2-4 servings.
