dishes with edamame?

I love boiled/salted edamame, but I have found just one additional use for them: as the base for a delicious spread. Puree with canola oil, 1/2 seasoned- 1/2 non-seasoned rice vinegar, and salt & pepper... toast sesame seeds and sprinkle atop. serve with rice crackers-- thanks to NYC's Ilene Rosen of City Bakery. What are your favorite dishes including edamame? would love to hear.

    1. oh my goodness, I love edamame. I add it to lots of salads, my tuna salad, chicken salad, turkey salad, sauted vegies in braggs liquid amino over brown rice with a good grated cheese.

      1. Edamame- my healthy comfort food. Like 'em too much to add them to anything (they get eaten that fast in my house).

        My favorite is steamed with a tad bit of salt. I pop 'em and eat them like popcorn (with a shell). Great appetizer.

        1. Edamame Hummus - essentially like the spread you are describing, but with tahini, garlic, lemon... I've also mixed it with chickpeas or white beans. Yum!

            Yes, I've made that. No canola oil though. Hummus definitely takes olive oil (I hate canola oil, prefer sunflower or peanut as a stir-fry oil).

          2. I have used it as a substitute for peas, in curries,pasta and fried rice. I'm thinking of adding it to my Zatarain's jambalaya mix.... Would that be wierd?
