80--- Sweet and Spicy Togarashi Edamame




How about a new spin on an easy appetizer?  This one's so easy to whip up on short notice.  And it's healthy!

You can find the spicy Japanese togarashi seasoning at a specialty grocery, such as World Market.  It's a combination of sesame, orange peel, chiles, and nori.

Sweet and Spicy Togarashi Edamame
Serves 6

4 cups frozen edamame (in shell)
1 tsp sesame oil
1 tsp chili garlic sauce
2 tsp liquid aminos (or lite soy sauce)
1 tsp maple syrup
1/2 tsp togarashi seasoning

Steam edamame in microwave, or in steam pan over boiling water until cooked though (follow specific package directions).

In a small skillet, heat remaining ingredients over medium high heat.

When edamame is cooked, transfer to a serving dish and pour over hot seasoning mixture. Toss to coat and serve immediately!
