ARF Tuesday (early)-Edamame
For dinner tonight I went back to the Meatless Monday theme and prepared a very nutritious soup from the March issue of Everyday Food. This is a Martha Stewart publication that I really enjoy. It has some simple yet tasty recipes every month. Edamame Corn Chowder is quick, tasty, and very healthy. For those of you not familiar with edemame, it is young or immature soybeans. It can be purchased shelled or in the pod and in the frozen food section of your supermarket. All that is available here is the "in the pod" version which can be shelled before (as for this recipe) or after cooking. It has a nutty/beany taste and is kind of sweet. Very good, and very good for you also.
This is an under 30 minute dish ( if you can find shelled edamame, otherwise you have about 20 minutes of shelling to do). You begin by browning and crisping some bacon, remove to drain and saute some chopped onion until soft. Add broth, potato, and seasoning, simmer then add corn, edamame, and half-and-half. Simmer until all veggies are tender and you are good to go! Of course, I could eat soup every night and I would not complain!
I will be submitting this dish for Sweetnicks ARF Tuesday feature. Be sure to check it out tomorrow evening.
That is it for tonight. I will be cooking from various magazine sources this week. Check back in to see what's cookin'.
