I wish I had more time…

I wish I felt like I had time to blog more often.  I suppose I should just make it a priority like going to the gym, but as per usual life has gotten in the way. No excuses now that the semester is over. Overall this has meant less planned cooking and more ” AH, its 5 pm what is in the freezer?” Well this time it was simple, fast, and healthy. How many times do you pull something out of the freezer and come up with that combination?

Just ready for the snacking!

1 lb frozen edamame, in shell

3 cloves of garlic, diced

1 1/2 tsp salt

1 tsp oil (I used olive oil, but any kind is fine)

1/4 tsp dried chili flakes

1 lemon or lime

Boil the edamame in salted water, just like with pasta, for around 3-4 minutes. By now the edamame should be bright green. While the edamame are boiling heat a wok or skillet on medium heat and add the oil, garlic, and chili flakes.  The spiced should be fragrant, but watch that the garlic doesn’t burn. Toss the edamame in the wok for about 1 minute. Squeeze some fresh lemon or lime juice over the edamame and serve.

You eat the edamame by putting the pod in your mother and sucking/teething the beans out, so you get the spicy sour on the pod with the richness of the bean. Just don’t get forget and eat the pod because it’s so tasty.

I’m going to try to post more before I travel to New England for a month!  Next goal? Biscuits with whole wheat flour, will they be hard like rocks? Lets hope not!

Until later, life is short, lick the spoon!
