Recipe – Edamame with Furikake


Edamame, soybeans in the pod, are a popular bar snack all over Japan … a bit like beer nuts or pretzels. You can buy them frozen from Asian grocers to have on hand when friends drop by for a drink. Simply blanch them (or better still pop them in the microwave for a minute) and they’re ready to go. I discovered that they’re even better tossed with a shake of furikake (Japanese rice seasoning) and ichimi togarashi (red chilli powder), an idea I first saw at mod Japanese diner Cho Cho San in Potts Point, Sydney. Enjoy with a cold Yebisu beer, try the premium black if you’re a fan of dark beers!

Serves 6 as a snack

Ingredients
  • 400g frozen brined edamame
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 2 tablespoons furikake
  • Ichimi togarashi, for sprinkling (optional)
Method
  1. Place frozen edamame in a bowl and into the microwave on high for a minute or so until heated through. Pat dry on paper towel. (see note below)
  2. Place in a large bowl with vegetable oil and toss to coat.
  3. Add furikake and toss through.
  4. Transfer to a serving bowl and sprinkle with a little ichimi togarashi if you like.
  5. Serve with a large bowl for the empty pods.

As an alternative to microwaving, place frozen edamame in a saucepan of cold water and bring to the boil. Drain well.

We made the pot-sticker dumplings and bang bang chicken – once again both exceeded our expectations. My husband keeps saying it’s better ordering this than going out to restaurants as the recipes and food quality are amazing.

I loved the Fresh & Easy Chicken – simple instructions, only a few ingredients and the time factor absolutely spot on. Then came the highlight, the taste, no compromise on the enjoyment of that meal! For the time poor Fresh & Easy hits the mark indeed.

Thank you for stocking our pantry with such authentic Ingredients and quality produce ... I’ve so enjoyed picking fresh leaves from the herb pots and loved listening to the chef's playlist while cooking. We really like the flexibility of cooking over a couple of days and changing the order we cook the dishes in when we want to.
