Nutritious, delicious, and surprisingly versatile, young green soybeans (better known as edamame) have gone from Asian restaurant appetizer to healthful home-cooking favorite.
“Japanese curries are thickened like gravy and much more simple in flavor than those of Thailand,” says Trang.
Here’s the vegetarian answer to Sloppy Joes—edamame lightens up a black bean mixture to keep these sliders from tasting too dense.
The pâté can also be spread on crackers or thinned with additional water and used as a dip.
This stew tastes even better as leftovers, once the flavors have had a chance to develop. Serve it over mashed potatoes for a deliciously comforting meal.
