     Title: Spicy Edamame

Anyone who can boil water can make this quick, healthy snack - Spicy Edamame. Pick up a couple baskets from new Thursday Market produce and cut flower vendor John Bartlett this week.



Fill a one-gallon pot with water and bring to a rolling boil. Add hot pepper and salt; stir to dissolve seasonings. Add edamame, stir, and return to a boil. Reduce heat to medium and simmer for 10 to 15 minutes or until beans are tender. Remove from heat and let beans sit for a few minutes in the cooking liquid.

Use a slotted spoon to transfer cooked edamame to a serving dish. Ladle some of the cooking liquid and seasonings over the beans and serve hot.

To serve cold, place edamame in a covered container and refrigerate. Always serve soy beans in some of the cooking liquid.

Serves 2-4
