I've been devouring this batch of edamame and rice I made last week for three days. That's the beauty of cooking for yourself (and yourself only)...leftovers!
I boiled a bag of frozen edamame in their shells and set it aside to cool.
My sister and I laughed at the brand name of this shouting "Success!!" when the rice was finished boiling.
I shelled the edamame, which wasn't really too hard, and kind of fun. When you squeeze the shell, they spew out, sometimes onto the counter, which makes those freebies that you eat right away. ;-)
Julie and Julia which is a butter-filled book) to the rice and edamame, I added pepper and salt and voila! A delightfully simple side-dish.
Then I added some eggs to part of the leftovers this weekend. (See my Rice-A-Roni post for more details on the method.)
And lastly, today, the winner of all....did the same thing as in method #2, but also added a tablespoon of plain Chobani Greek Yogurt (P.S. Did you enter my giveaway for a whole case of the good stuff??!)
This entire post was procrastinating writing some guest posts for some amazing blogs. EEek! One of them is due tomorrow and I haven't even started. I have a topic...but still procrastinating. Sounds like a late-night project, yes?
Also if you follow me on Twitter...you will know I made a very exciting purchase this weekend. If not, well, you will have to wait until later so I can tell you ALL ABOUT IT! ;-)
Time to get ready for work at the wing-n-beer joint! Have a great night friends!

Are you a fan of leftovers?
Have you had edamame anywhere besides a sushi joint?
