After kicking much hun butt, Mulan certainly deserves something more tasty than that military camp slush. So I whipped up an Asian inspired roasted edamame for a meal enhancer that Chien Po could approve of. It only uses three ingredients, takes about 30 minutes, and delivers a bold flavor worth fighting for.
This edamame is super easy, doesn’t talk to long, and gives you a sweet & spicy treat to add to all sorts of stuff. Surely, you can eat this stuff by itself, hot or cold. But you can also eat it with white rice, in fried rice, inside salads, all sorts of stuff. It’s very versatile. Like Mulan, of course. To make it, you’ll just need three things:
1/2 Cup Sriracha Peas
2 Tablespoons Makoto Ginger Dressing
1 Cup Shelled Edamame
First, preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Add the 1/2 cup of sriracha peas to a food processor. Pulse the peas until they become smaller crumbs.
If using frozen edamame, thaw that or microwave it until thawed. Place in a medium sized bowl, and add the ginger dressing. I stress that if you make this, you use that brand of dressing. I have no idea how other ginger dressings taste, but this one is exceptional. It’s addicting & delicious. Makoto all the way. So, add your amazing dressing to the peas, and combine the two, making sure all the peas are coated. Then, add the crumbed peas and do the same. Make sure it’s evenly stuck on all the beans. Then, place it all on a cookie sheet, evenly spreading it out so it’s not all touching too much. Put that in the oven for about 20 – minutes, until the coating on the beans starts to get crispy.
And there you have it. A sweet, spicy snack or contributor to any meal to make it extra tasty, or even just a meal in it’s self. With the sriracha peas, these little beans pack a punch. You might say that they’ll make a man out of you. I find that some of the ginger flavor bakes out a little bit, and being an addict of that dressing, I like to eat this cold and dip it in a bit of the dressing. This is super easy to make, so grandmother says even you can’t blow it. Just keep a cricket in the kitchen for good luck, and you’ll always have delicious edamame.
