Season Your Frozen Edamame With Whatever You Already Have in Your Pantry.
Edamame (unpeeled soybeans) is a quick and easy snack that’s pretty good with a little salt, but if you want to enhance the flavor of the soybeans, look no further than your locker.
Kitchn offers five different edamame flavor enhancements, all of which are quite tasty. (Click the link below to see all five.) A couple of rather unusual , for example, sambal Olek and smoked salt and sugar turbinado , but two of them can be made from the fact that you probably already have in your kitchen.
The first is almost easy to guess. You probably already have salt, so why not add some rice vinegar and try one of the best flavor combinations known to mankind? (Salt and vinegar are great ; haters on the left .) To prepare, simply mix 1 1/2 cups of heated unrefined edamame with a tablespoon of rice vinegar and flaked sea salt until coated. Mash it into chops or refrigerate until tender.
If you’re one of those weird mutant people who don’t like salt and vinegar, consider adding some garlic and parmesan to your edamame – a flavor combination that only a monster won’t like. Simply mix 1 1/2 cups of heated unrefined edamame with a teaspoon of olive oil with a clove of minced garlic and 2 tablespoons of grated raw grains. If you want to reduce the garlic bite, you can always fry everything a little to get the garlic golden brown. In fact, you should definitely do this, but swap olive oil for a tablespoon of butter. Stir-fried edamame is truly life-changing.
