Easy Edamame Recipe

Soybean Food Photography

I was shooting dumplings yesterday during a food photo session, and I needed a colorful dish to add as part of my styling set-up. I grabbed a frozen bag of soybeans I had picked up from Trader Joes and decided to throw a little side dish together. After I let Terri have a taste, her eyes got big and she asked if I could make these more often. Apparently, it was good! So if you love snacking on edamame as much as I do, but you’re tired of just heating and adding salt, then you’re going to love this 10-minute recipe to add a little pizazz to your soybeans.

All you need is 1/2 lb of shelled soybeans and:

• 2 tbsp. Sesame Oil (Olive can be a replacement, but Sesame adds that little extra sumthin’ sumthin’)
• 2 finely chopped green onions
• 3 finely chopped garlic clove
• 2 tsp. tarragon
• 1 tbsp of soy sauce
• Pepper (garnish to taste)

Warm your saute pan over medium heat. Add sesame oil, onions and garlic. Saute for about 2 minutes until onions and garlic turn golden.

Add in your soybeans, tarragon and soysauce. Saute everything together for an additional 3 minutes.

Remove from heat and transfer to serving bowls. Garnish with a pinch of pepper and enjoy!
