Edamame

I have grown to love and crave edamame.  I buy the large bag at Sam's.  Each large bag has 8  8 oz bags of soybeans in pods.  I just put a bag in the microwave for 3 1/2 minutes, sprinkle with sea salt and devour.  I can eat the entire bag.  I don't have to share cause you know they are green and can't get near my husband's plate.


I follow Maria Lichty on twitter and recently she shared a recipe for Edamame Avocado Salad Sandwich....caught my attention immediately. The link took me to her wonderful blog, Two Peas and Their Pod. If you are looking for a new, delicious recipe, pop over to her blog and you'll surely find one. OK, back to the sandwich. Today I finally had time and the ingredients on hand to make for my lunch.

This is such a delicious sandwich. Not heavy but so filling. 4 hours later, I am still quite satisfied (very unusual/ha) Could be because after I finished it, I used chips and ate it for dip!  Just couldn't quit.  For the recipe click here and then you can check out her other tempting dishes.

On a sad note, my grass is almost completely dead.  You know how I love to mow, etc.  If we don't get rain soon everything will be gone and it is still MAY!!! Oh my! Guess we are still paying for the warm March.

Have a good holiday weekend all and thank you for your concern and kind words regarding brother in law.

I am also an edemame fan and I also love avocados so I'm sure I'll be making this sandwich one day, too, Nanny!

I love edamame. Thanks for telling me how to heat them in the microwave. I thought they had to be boiled!

Oh dear! I'm sorry about your lawn. We really like edamame too. People used to grow them in Hawaii and we'd have fresh beans all the time. I do still enjoy them, but they're pretty expensive. And actually, the frozen ones are just as good. Funny...
