Bla Bla Bla- It seems like you go to a party, or you have a party, and the food is always the same. I would like to share a fun-easy recipe to make at your next party. I make it spicy, but you can leave the hot pepper out for the kids.

                                Spicy Edamame

(Makes 2-3 Serving)

Ingredients:
12 Ounce Bag Edamame (In the pod- Frozen)
¼ Cup Olive Oil
1.5 Teaspoons Ginger (Fresh/ Minced)
1.5 Teaspoons Garlic (Fresh/ Minced)
1 Teaspoon Red Pepper Flakes
To Taste Salt
To Taste Black Pepper (Fresh Ground)

Procedure:

- Note: Cooking edamame is simple. Some people steam the edamame, others put them in the microwave. I like them boiled. I boil 2 quarts of water with 1 tablespoon of salt, add the edamame; bring the water again to a boil for 3 minutes and drain the water. Very simple!

- Lightly brown the garlic and ginger in the olive oil over medium heat. Add the hot pepper flakes and remove from the heat. Toss this mixture with the cooked edamame; season with salt and pepper. Enjoy!
