Edamame is a veggie I had never tried before finding it at Sam's Club this past weekend. It was frozen and came in 8 ready to eat containers, frozen and ready to be microwaved. I had no idea how to eat the stuff however. I microwaved it and put on the sea salt as the package suggested and attempted to eat the whole pod. Well, I ate a few until realizing that the pod was rather stringy and did not taste good at all. I put the pack in the refrigerator and waited till this evening to try it again. Well, tonight I squeezed the soybeans out of the pod and they tasted so much better. No stingy pods.
It sure is interesting trying new foods that I've never had before. Glad no one was around to see me try to eat the whole pod, it was a rather amusing site.
Now I'll have to keep on the outlook for Quinoa so I can add that cool looking badge to my sidebar!
Tuesday Tip of the Day:
Measure salad dressing and put it on the side and dip your salad. You will use much less dressing than you thought if you use it this way.
