I am trying something new this year in addition to the tried and true veggies. Something that has been requested by my daughter. Edamame. It's funny that it has a fancy name if you eat it green, and a plain name (soy bean) if you eat it once it's dried. My two boys won't touch it, but my hubby, daughter and I enjoy it a great deal. I boil it in the pod in very salty water and then sprinkle it with some additional sea salt just before eating. It gives us all permission to play with our food. I love popping the beans into my mouth right out of the pod. My daughter also loves to eat them cold the next day.
And so, I'm hoping that we'll get some magic this summer and be able to eat edamame, fresh out of the garden instead of fresh out of the freezer.
