Salted Edamame with Roasted Garlic and Herbs

 Kara, in response to your comment… this one is for you! Kara wrote and asked for some ideas with edamame, and so I put on my “lab coat” and started experimenting. Thank you for the request, and I am happy to report we found a winning recipe- three variations-all extremely easy and all mouth watering!

Salted Edamame with Roasted Garlic and Herbs

There is this restaurant called Ola at Turtle Bay Resort, on the North Shore, that serves an edamame appetizer that everyone goes crazy over- myself included.

The server brings out this massive plate, piled high with buttery, salty edamame and a whole head of roasted garlic sits right on top.

When the server puts the plate down, he takes the head of garlic and squeezes it over the entire plate. The roasted garlic comes out like butter and smears all over the edamame- everyone Ooo’s and Awwhs… I am telling you, it is out of this world!

From what I can tell, they use roasted garlic, edamame, butter, a ton of salt and a squeeze of lemon. This will be our base—or recipe if this suits you!

First Recipe: Roasted Garlic Edamame

Ingredients

1 head of garlic (roasted) (see recipe below)

1 pound edamame (cooking instructions below)

2-4 tablespoons of melted butter or olive oil (depending on how buttery you want it- the more the better tasting)

Salt to taste (The more the better in this dish)

Squeeze of lemon

Roast head of garlic Instructions

Pre-heat oven to 350 Degrees F. Bake for 45 minutes

Cut bottom of head of garlic off

Drizzle with Olive Oil (about 1 tablespoons)

Sprinkle with Salt and Pepper

Wrap in tin foil and place on middle rack

Bake for 45 minutes.

Wait until cool enough to handle to open tin foil

It should be a buttery soft consistency

Cooking edamame Instructions:

Add frozen edamame into boiling salted water and cook for 2 to 4 minutes over high heat until it comes to a second boil. Drain the edamame. Add salt and serve in desired way.

 Instructions for preparing dish:

Serve roasted garlic squeezed on top of edamame, drizzle with butter or olive oil, sprinkle salt and a squeeze of lemon.

You will love it!

My newest and most favorite way is basically the same, but add purple onion, and fresh mint to the mix of butter, salt and lemon! We tried it with basil, which was good, but mint takes home the gold metal.

The mint adds a punch of brightness to the overall dish and the onion creates a whole added element of robust. It was finger licking amazing. Basically I wanted to pick up the plate and lick it gone, but my man “Riggins” basically fights me over it and soaks up the last of the drippings with his bread.  ‘Riggin’s’, it’s a good thing you are so dang cute!
