Useful Tips



I love legumes for their taste, texture and health benefits. Hot Edamame at home - a great appetizer for meetings with friends! If you want to punish someone for a sharp tongue, just add more pepper to a serving of Edamame,)

Ingredients (for 2 people)

1. Bring the water to a boil in a small saucepan.
2. Add washed beans to boiling water for about 4 minutes (if you have frozen beans - do not hesitate to follow the instructions on the package too). Then strain and set aside.

3. Heat olive oil in a pan, add squeezed garlic to it, mix, then chili pepper, sugar and soy sauce, and warm thoroughly, often stirring until the sauce thickens. Turn off the fire.


Edamam is a great food for vegetarians and vegans. Most often, these beans are sold frozen. To prepare them, you only need salt, boiling water and 10 minutes of time.

For 6 cups of boiling water add 1 tbsp. a spoonful of salt. 2 cups of fresh or frozen edamam are added there. After about 5 minutes, the edamam will become soft and can be removed. Ready beans can be additionally grated with coarse salt (to taste) and consumed as a separate snack or side dish. You can eat warm or wait for the dish to cool.

When boiling, many nutrients get into the water, so you can not pour it, but use it, for example, when preparing mashed potatoes.

Ideally, you need to achieve the same conditions as in a double boiler. Maintain the temperature at the same level and let the rice simmer over low heat.
  3. While the rice is cooking, boil the broccoli in boiling water for 2 minutes, drop it in a colander and rinse with ice water to make the broccoli crisp.
  4. Boil Edamame for 5 minutes, drain the water, dry and clear of pods.
