Edamame Pods snack/appetizer





Ingredients:


Two 14 oz pack of frozen Edamame pods
2 teaspoon of salt
1 tbl spoon on olive oil
2 tbl spoon of Cumin powder
1 teaspoon of Cayenne pepper
1 teaspoon of ground black pepper
1 teaspoon of black salt (optional)
Fresh juice on one lime

Method:

* Empty pods in a baking dish
* Sprinkle some water and 1 teaspoon of salt on the pods
* Cover with plastic wrap and microwave them for 8-10 min mixing them occasionally
* Take them out of microwave and add olive oil and rest of the salt and spices.
* Squeeze lime juice over them and mix well.
* They are ready to be served.
* Yield ~16-20 servings

Tip: You can peel the pods beforehand take the seeds out and use the same recipe for shelled Edemame, however it is fun to eat the seeds out of pod.
If using Edamame pods, use your teeth to squeeze the beans out of the pod. Soybean pods are pulled along teeth and beans are removed for eating. Discard soybean pods.
