I get together with a group of ladies most Friday nights and like to make something fun for them, because I just like to make something fun to eat. And then there is the Secret Recipe Club where I am given a blog to explore and make one of the recipes from the blog and blog about it at my assigned time.
So, no problem, right?
Well there was a problem. I was assigned Join us, pull up a chair and Heather had way too many great sounding recipes that I wanted to try .
Recipes that would fit perfectly for an NPA get together or one of my Tapas Nights or gee, just ones I wanted to try.
I found this, Buffalo Chicken Rolls and then there was this one, Hoisin Glazed Meatballs which would have been great to try when I made the Asian Style Turkey Meatballs last Tapas Night.
But I decided on Crispy Edamame because I'm trying to eat a little cleaner, and I love Edamames and since I had some in the freezer, well, it was a natural choice.
See my dilemma? No. Well, everyone wanted the recipe, and wanted to know when it was going to be posted on my blog, and I had to tell them they had to wait, til today, Monday.
12 oz bag frozen shelled edamame, thawed
1 Tbsp olive oil
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese, I used the powdered stuff in the jar. I actually added more freshly grated cheese after spreading the peas out on the baking sheet, but it didn't coat as well.
salt & fresh ground pepper
Opt. Sliced garlic
Preheat oven to 400 deg. Take Edamame out of freezer and either rinse it to thaw it or let thaw in a colander.
Then add the 1/4 cup Parmesan Cheese, shake it again.
On a parchment paper lined baking sheet, pour the coated Edamame. Spread out in a single layer.
Add the thinly sliced clove of garlic at this point, stir and bake for another 5 minutes.*
Allow to cool slightly before enjoying.
*I found that I needed to bake them longer. And the next time, I will do the initial bake for about 20 minutes, then add the thinly sliced garlic and bake for an additional 10 minutes or so. They weren't crispy, but were tasty.
These were so good scooped up in a Lentil chip and eaten out of hand. Someone else had brought the Lentil chips, so we tried them together, and I would do that again. And best of all, this is a healthy recipe.
