A Fresh Dille

what else can you do with edamame?

Posted in FOOD, VEGAN by clairedille on August 11, 2008

Edamame isn’t really something one can become bored with. After indulging in my fair share of sushi over the years, there have been many times I have found myself eating almost the entire appetizer myself. Over the weekend I tried a new delicacy from Whole Foods, the Edamame Hummus. If you have not tried it, I recommend searching for some. If I read the ingredients correctly, I do not remember any mention of chickpeas or tahini (I will be sure to check when I return to the owner of this amazing hummus’ house later this evening).

Does anyone else have a compulsion to bookmark everything? I have bookmarked hundreds of recipes and websites already and this is a new computer. The bookmarks I have created range from fashion sites to vegan recipes, and current fitness plans. I even have a kitchen design bookmark and one that reads as follows, EXPENSIVE wish list. This list has a fair share of Stella McCartney and Alexander Wang clothing items I won’t be able to afford for a few years (I hope).

A recipe for Edamame Dumplings was calling my name when I decided it was time to tackle my freezer food and canned goods before I move at the end of August. When I return from Martha’s Vineyard on the 20th I will not be allowing myself to grocery shop until after I move on the 30th. One allowance will be the farmer’s market for berries and some other produce I can eat quickly. I have at least six different types of soups.

Back to the edamame…I found the recipe here. Enjoy

The red pepper flakes really gave the recipe the kick it needed to satisfy my taste buds but scallions or ginger whipped up with the edamame would also be delicious.

Have a lovely Monday everyone. To prepare you and myself for Friday, here is an old photo of my fabulous cousin Julia (right) and myself (left) on our beach on Martha’s Vineyard (can you spy my adorable little sisters chubby baby legs?). I love how my mother accessorized me.

    Wow, I really like the look of those dumplings. The crispy char you got on them is awesome 🙂

    I know what you mean about the bookmarking… organization is key. I would be completely lost without it. But here’s the real question… where is Baking with Dynamite on your list? 😉

    Enjoy your Monday too, and I hope moving isn’t too stressful.

    Edamame dumplings?! Way to combine two of my very favorite foods in the world!

    And I hear you on the bookmarking–especially with recipes and things! I don’t even end up looking at 80% of the links again 😛

    I love those wontons! I started to eat mine with splash of olive oil and some parmesan. Cute picture of you and your cousin!

    I think you are near nyc, Rickshaw Dumpling Bar just introduced whole wheat edammame dumplings. They are pretty great.

    I heart MV. I can’t wait to go in a couple weeks!
