I’m not really sure how to eat edamame.
I typically use shelled edamame in my cooking. I love stirring it into stir-fries and rice. But whole edamame? It’s a mystery to me.
I bought a couple of bags of the stuff the other day at the grocery store, intent on figuring out what to do with them. I decided to throw them in the air fryer to crisp them up and go from there.
Add in some garlic and Parmesan and I knew I couldn’t go wrong.
These were a delightful little treat, but I’m still slightly confused. Are you supposed to eat the whole thing? Or are you supposed to strip out the seeds like a sunflower seed? When you eat the whole thing, you get these stringy bits from the edges of the pod. I HATE those. If you know how to eat whole edamame, help a girl out.
Garlic Parmesan Edamame
- 1 (12 oz) bag frozen whole pod edamame, thawed
- 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
- 2 tsp. garlic powder
- salt & pepper
- 2 TBS. olive oil
- In a large bowl, combine edamame with olive oil, garlic powder, salt and pepper. Stir in Parmesan cheese and toss well to coat.
- Place edamame in an air fryer. Cook at 400 degrees for 10-12 minutes or until lightly charred and crispy. (Can use an oven if you don’t have an air fryer, just place edamame in a single layer on a rimmed baking sheet and bake for 12-15 minutes at 400 degrees).
