Edamame with Scallions and Sesame

"Edamame is the Japanese name for green soybeans.  These tasty beans have exploded in popularity in recent years.  Give them a try, and soon you'll be hooked!  The easy cooking method used here has this dish ready in 15 minutes"

1 bag or 12oz. frozen shelled edamame
1 T light soy sauce
1/2 cup water
1 1/2 t sesame oil
Dash of hot-pepper sauce (optional)
2 T finely chopped scallions
1/8 t ground black pepper

Bring the edamame, soy sauce, and water to a boil in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat.  Reduce the heat to low and simmer, stirring occasionally, for 12 minutes, or until tender.  If any liquid remains, cook, stirring occasionally, until liquid has evaporated.
Remove from the heat.  Stir in the sesame oil, canola oil, hot-pepper sauce, if using, scallions, and black pepper.

Makes 4 servings

My Review
I heart edamame!  It's a great source of protein and fiber.  This would be a great side dish or cooled and topped on a salad.  Enjoy...
