1/2 starch, 1 1/2 lean meat
2 cups water
1/2 teaspoon stevia sweetenerOR
1 stevia sweetener packet
10 drops clear-flavored liquid stevia sweetener
2 cups frozen, shelled edamame (green soybeans)OR
4 1/2 cups frozen edamame pods
1 tablespoon soy sauce (lowest sodium available)
2 teaspoons Sriracha hot sauce
1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
1 teaspoon grated, peeled gingerroot
1 medium garlic clove (minced)
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon sesame seeds
1 tablespoon plain rice vinegar
Put the water, stevia sweetener, and liquid stevia sweetener in a medium saucepan. Stir together. Bring to a boil over high heat, stirring occasionally. Stir in the edamame. Cook for 3 to 5 minutes, or until tender, stirring occasionally. Drain the edamame in a colander, discarding the water mixture. Set aside.
In the same saucepan, heat the soy sauce, rice vinegar, Sriracha, sesame oil, gingerroot, garlic, and pepper over low heat for 1 to 2 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the edamame, tossing to coat.
Sprinkle the sesame seeds over the edamame.
To eat edamame that’s still in the pod, bring the pod to your lips, then squeeze or bite the beans into your mouth. You don't eat the pod, just the edamame beans inside, which will easily pop out.
