This falls into the category of something I invented but “they” already had. My most recent obsession is snacking on dry roasted edamame. A couple of weeks ago, while trying to make room in my cupboard, I combined a half-finished tub of edamame with a half-finished tub of dried cranberries to save space.
Later, when I took out the combined tub, I was thrilled with what I thought was my own peculiar concoction – dried roasted edamame with cranberries and it was a yummy treat. The lightly salted edamame rubbed off on the cranberries and it was soooo tasty.
The other day on a trip to my local market, I noticed that they sold packages of dried roasted edamame with dried cranberries. Go figure.
And now I open a past issue of Whole Living magazine only to find a recipe for the same treat.
The Dry-Roasted Edamame with Cranberries recipe sounds super easy and I am going to try it this week. Whole Living says this recipe is: “a nice break from nuts, edamame give this unconventional trail mix a satisfying crunch.” I agree. I love nuts, but often feel that heavy feeling after eating them – when I munch on dried roasted edamame, I feel better.
By the way, I love the edamame (fresh, frozen and roasted) products of Seapoint Farms – check out all their fine products here.
