I’m not really going to write a poem here. The title of this post just aims to convey the sense of admiration I have for this, the so-called wonderveggie. What is it, oh green one, that makes you so addicting? In fact, there may be no real point to this post except to share my love for edamame; I’m not going into the beans’ nutritional properties and health benefits. I just love them; their buttery taste and the meditative act of eating them by squeezing the beans out of their pod with my mouth. By far, the best edamame I’ve tried at a Miami restaurant [pictured above] is at Indochine — an Asian restaurant a few doors down from Tobacco Road. If you haven’t tried it, go. Its wok specials and mango sushi roll are pretty good. But back to the edamame, here’s a simple Edamame Salad recipe* I love.
*Note: This recipe works just as well without the radishes, the cilantro and dressing give the edamame a great taste. You can also serve it over greens.
