I could have spent all day watching P. Allen Smith cook.  I think I mentioned that he seriously knows what he’s doing: gardening, cooking, decorating, history, Arkansas…he is like a walking encyclopedia.  He made this Garlic Parmesan Edamame for us and it was delicious. I made it for dinner tonight and we all loved it.  My kids like to eat edamame anyway, so this wasn’t much of a stretch, but it would be a great way to try edamame if you never have.

Garlic Parmesan Edamame

 

16 ounce package frozen edamame in shell
½ cup extra-virgin olive oil
4 cloves garlic, minced
½ cup Italian-seasoned bread crumbs
½ cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
½ teaspoon dried oregano
½ teaspoon onion powder
Salt and pepper to taste

 

Steam edamame in microwave until slightly warm and not frozen. Drain and set aside. Heat a large pan over medium high heat. Add olive oil and garlic and stir until garlic begins to cook, about 2 minutes. Add edamame and toss for a few seconds. Add breadcrumbs, Parmesan, oregano, onion powder and salt and pepper. Then toss until well coated. Serve immediately.
