Edamame

The miracle bean is not only a true source of protein, but also contains healthy omega-3 fatty acids, vitamins C, E and B-6 as well as iron and calcium. Edamame are gluten-free, cholesterol-free and have a very low calorie content.






Ingredients for 2 people:

200 g edamame (frozen)

500 ml water

2 tsp coarse salt

1 clove of garlic

1 tbsp oil (for example rapeseed oil)


for a spicy variation:1 tsp chili oil

1/2 tsp chili flakes


Preparation: (20 min)

Prepare the ingredients for the edamame with chili oil and garlic flakes.

Pour water into a pot and bring to the boil. Add the “normal” salt as soon as the water is boiling.

Now add the frozen edamame (do not need to be defrosted first) into the pot, turn the heat to medium and cook for 5 minutes. Then pour the contents of the pot through a sieve (DO NOT rinse the edamame with cold water, but let it cool briefly in the sieve).

Press the garlic lightly with the back of a knife, then remove the skin and grate finely.

Heat a medium-sized pan over medium heat and add oil (NOT the chili oil). Briefly fry the garlic in the hot pan while stirring until the edges become crispy-brown.

Add the cooked edamame to the lightly roasted garlic and fry vigorously but briefly, stirring or tossing. Then turn off the heat.

Now season the roasted edamame with a little chili oil as desired and spread briefly by stirring or tossing.

Pour the edamame into a small bowl and sprinkle with the chili flakes.

To eat, press one side of the edamame pod with your fingers to push out the edible beans (the pod is not suitable for consumption). Done!
