This week I have been cooking a lot from Martha Stewart's Everyday Food Magazine I get as part of my subscription. I came across this recipe and changed a few ingredients. It is an excellent way to sneak in protein for those who either don't eat meat or those who don't like veggies like my hubby. He will eat a bowl of edamame like it's popcorn however! My version contains sausage rather than bacon. If you aren't a bacon eater it doesn't necessarily agree with you if you try to eat it.
The edamame you can prep by placing the frozen pods in a microwave safe bowl. Add 2 TBSP of water and cover with Saran wrap. Microwave for 5 minutes. Remove the soybeans from their pod by squeezing into a bowl. Otherwise, you will be chasing down the beans all over your kitchen.
Edamame, Sausage, and Potato Hash (serves 4)
4 par boiled potatoes diced
1/2 tube Jones' mild sausage in the tube
10 oz. edamame steamed and shelled
1/2 onion diced
1/2 green pepper diced
2 TBSP oil
salt and pepper
Firstly I browned the sausage, green pepper, and onion together in the same pan. I added 2 TBSP of oil just in case but the sausage does make it's own oil. Once browned I removed to a paper plate lined with paper towels.
Next I drained off a bit of the oil and left about 2-3 TBSP in the pan. I added the par boiled diced potatoes and covered with a lid. I let sit for about 5 minutes until it began to brown. I kept turning the potatoes every few minutes until they were browned. Total time about 15 minutes.
Add the sausage, green pepper, onion, and shelled edamame. Heat through for about 5 more minutes. Serve with your favorite eggs. Today I made over medium.
