In Response to Re: How to Grow Edamame and a Recipe:
I love edamame! I order them at my favorite Thai restuarant regularly. I started to buy them frozen and replace them with lima beans in a lot of recipes. I am not a fan of lima beans .
I will have to try to grow edamame myself - I have never heard of this but will have to keep my eyes open at next visit to farmer's market.
Here is what I made yesterday and will be enjoying for lunch today that has just so happens to have edamame in it:
1 1/2 cups uncooked quinoa
3 cups organic vegetable broth (such as Swanson Certified Organic)
1 (14-ounce) package reduced-fat firm tofu, cut into 1/4-inch cubes
3 tablespoons olive oil, divided
1 1/4 teaspoons salt, divided
1 cup chopped fresh basil
3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
1 teaspoon sugar
2 teaspoons grated lemon rind
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 cup edamame beans
4 cups chopped tomato (about 3 medium)
1/2 cup sliced green onions
1/2 cup chopped carrot
1 (15-ounce) can black beans, rinsed and drained
Bring quinoa and vegetable broth in a saucepan to a boil. Then cover, reduce heat, and simmer 15 minutes or until broth is absorbed. Remove from heat and let cool off.
Heat / cook edamame and then let cool.
Place tofu on several layers of paper towels; cover with additional paper towels. Let stand for at least 5 minutes. Then cut up tofu into small one inch squares.
Then heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add tofu; sprinkle with salt and sauté for about 10 minutes or until lightly browned on all sides. Remove from heat and allow them to cool completely.
In large bowl add 2 tablespoons oil, 1 teaspoon salt, chopped basil, dijon mustard, black pepper, lemon rind, lemon juice, sugar and minced garlic in a large bowl; stir with a whisk until blended. Add chopped tomato, green onions and chopped carrots. Then add rinsed black beans, quinoa and tofu. Stir gently to mix then store in covered bowl until ready to serve.
