[Lisa Washburn, county Extension agent, Family and Consumer Sciences in Garland County. The following presentation took place at the 2012 Arkansas Flower and Garden Show February 24-26 at the State House Convention Center.] We are demonstrating Asian edamame and I don’t know that there could possibly be an easier recipe than this. You combine a tablespoon of soy sauce, a little bit of olive oil, and then sesame oil. So what I’m going to do is just sprinkle that in there. Curry powder, ginger, it has crushed red pepper and then it also has garlic powder. This red pepper – you’d be surprised how strong it is once you actually get it on the pods. The first time I made it, my lips were burning, so I’m only going to put a little bit. [Recipe for Asian Edamame Pods. Ingredients – ¼ to ½ teaspoon olive oil, - ¼ to ½ teaspoon sesame oil, - 1 tablespoon soy sauce. Add following to taste – crushed pepper flakes, curry powder, garlic powder, ground ginger, and kosher salt. Step one, cook edamame. Boil in the pods for 5-10 minutes or microwave in pods 4-6 minutes in a microwave safe bowl covered with plastic wrap. Step two, create mixture part 1, add together 1 tablespoon soy sauce, ½ teaspoon olive oil, and ½ teaspoon sesame oil. Step two, create mixture part 2, add a dash of (vary amounts to taste): curry powder, garlic powder, ground ginger, crushed red pepper, then allow the entire mixture to rest for a few minutes.]
[Lisa adding red pepper to the mixture and stirring it together.] I’m going to stir this up, and ideally I would let this set for a few minutes so the flavors could get all mingled together. [Lisa pours mixture of cooked edamame pods and stirs.] So we’re just going to pretend that I did that, that I let it sit for few minutes, and then I’m going to pour this mixture over my edamame and these have been microwaved so they are good and hot, and then I’m going to stir this together. [Step three, combine mixture with edamame while the edamame pods are warm. Add 1 tablespoon of the oil/spice mixture. Toss pods in mixture (add more of the oil/spice mixture until the desired flavor is reached. Finally add a bit of kosher salt and serve immediately.]
If you do this at home, you can use as little or as much of this mixture as you want. It just depends on what your preference is. And so from that you just add a little bit of kosher salt and you’re done. [Asian edamame pods fare best as an appetizer or snack. Try them at your next party; your guests will love them. They are also a great way to support your Arkansas soybean farmers! In 2012 Arkansas soybean farmers will begin growing edamame on a large scale.] [Lisa serves samples to participants at the Arkansas Flower and Garden Show.]
