This spicy and flavorful Dill Edamame Snack is absolutely delicious and a crowd pleaser appetizer. Its healthy and well seasoned along with being vegan.
Protein rich Edamame sauteed in aromatic cinnamon and cardamom powder sprinkled with antiseptic turmeric powder and generously flavored with fresh dill herbs. Yummy!!!!!
I have to confess here something…… I was not always a fan of edamame only because I felt lazy to eat it because of the way edamame in pods are supposed to be eaten.
But when I introduced more protein into my diet this year I decided to give this legume/soybean a second chance. I bought a bag of frozen edamame in pods and it lay ignored in my freezer for a while. No joking here…. I neglected it every time I pulled my freezer drawer.
Then one day I finally pulled out the packet and simply tossed it into some flavored oil and sat with a plate full of edamame. I started chewing on each edamame pod and went on and on and on.
By the time I finished my serving I fell in love with this soybean. I love it. I simply love it. I guess I had some hang ups for no reason.
How to make Dill Edamame Snack
- Firstly, I blanched the frozen edamame.
- Secondly, I mixed all the seasonings including dill in a mixing bowl.
- Then, I heated oil in pan and added sesame seeds.
- Thereafter, I sauteed edamame in it and mixed some lemon juice.
- Lastly, I served it warm.
Edamame in pod is a popular dish in Japan and it’s a soybean. Extremely rich in protein and low in calorie this soybean is also a great source of antioxidants. Healthy snack for any time and can be served as appetizers in a potluck/any party Dill Edamame Snack is definitely a crowd pleaser.
They come in a pod and you simply need to scrape the inner seeds with your teeth.
This edamame recipe tastes best when served immediately. However the dill mix can be made ahead of time and kept in the refrigerator for a day.
