I’ve been doing my very best to eat healthy. I stopped eating junk food and turned to healthy snacks as an alternative. One of them is edamame beans. Whenever I go to S&R supermarket, I always stock up on Edamame. Usually I just boil it with salt and that’s it. Today, I’m sharing another way of cooking it, Edamame Beans Chinese Style.
The secret to bring more flavor into the beans is to cut the ends of the edamame. That way, the spices we put into the water while we boil the edamame goes in to the beans.
Edamame Beans Chinese Style
- 1/2 kg edamame beans
- 4 cups water
- 1 tbsp salt
- 3 pieces star anise
- 1 tbsp soy sauce
- 1 tsp whole peppercorns
- 4 cloves garlic smashed
Trim the ends of the edamame beans using a kitchen scissor.
In a pot, bring water, salt, star anise, soy sauce, whole peppercorns and garlic to a boil.
Once the water boils, bring down to a simmer. Simmer for 15 minutes.
After 15 minutes, turn up heat to medium and add the edamame beans.
Boil for 5 minutes.
Take the edamame off the pot and strain.
Serve and enjoy!
