Spicy Edamame Appetizer
Here is an appetizer recipe to share with your friends and family or to eat all by yourself. Spicy edamame is sure to make your nose run, so grab a tissue and lets get started.
This recipe is best when eaten right away. Re-heating can be difficult because it multiplies the spiciness. A lot.
On a budget?
This is a super cheap appetizer to make. Especially if you already have the flakes in your cabinet. You can also get a decent sized bag of edamame for a few dollars. Its even available to get with food stamps.
Save your money for something fun and get a tasty appetizer too. Win-win situation.
4- Ingredients: All you need is red chili flakes, garlic, sesame seeds, and edamame.
This recipe keeps its simple without sacrificing flavor. To prepare, mince about 4 or five cloves of garlic. Grab 1 teaspoon of red chili flavors. Another teaspoon of sesame seeds. Lastly, a bag of frozen edamame. Not the shelled kind but the one that are still in the pod.
How to make it
Get a sauce pan with a lid. Add 1 tablespoon of your preferred oil. Toss in the garlic and red chili flakes. Cook this on medium heat for 3-4 minutes so all the flavors come out. After that add in the whole bag of edamame and cover with a lid. You will cook this for at least 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. Test it after that to make sure it is nice and hot.
To serve your Spicy Edamame
You will eat the beans out of the pod and get all the spicy flavor off the pod. You may also want to serve this with an extra plate for the empty pods to go on.
This is the first time I have used the china I just got that used to be my great grandmothers.
