Edamame is Ohio’s edible soybean, firm and delicious with a slightly nutty flavor. They can be enjoyed simply steamed and salted and popped straight from their fuzzy pod into your mouth or shelled and used in this recipe where it adds a special twist to a classic pesto. Mix this version into hot pastas or spread on toasted bread slices. A dollop stirred into a vegetable soup delivers a wonderful savory accent.
This can be eaten warm as an entree, or cold as a salad.
